One of history's greatest explorers and missionaries, David Livingstone (1813-73) was the first European to cross Africa, and the first to find Victoria Falls and the source of the Congo River. From recently discovered letters, Tim Jeal—a national Book Critics Circle Award winner for Stanley—updates his 1973 biography, bringing this complex man into sharper focus. Jeal discusses Livingstone's decision to send his wife Mary back home to England, and finds that the explorer's problems with his African followers were far graver than previously understood. Here too is a revelatory look at Livingstone's importance to the British Empire, and his relationship with the journalist-adventurer Henry Morton Stanley.
