In the Heart of Africa

by Samuel White Baker

A wonderfully readable condensation of two of Baker's earlier, longer works recounting his self-sponsored expeditions into the Dark Continent to discover the sources of the Nile: The Albert N'Yanza, Great Basin Of The Nile (1866) and The Nile Tributaries Of Abyssinia (1867). And, of course, to bag a few elephants along the way.
