The Other Livingstone

For the first time the story can be told of four men who played a crucial part in David Livingstone’s discoveries – a part he attempted to supress.  This is a story of 19th century intrigue and rivalry which took place behind the scenes in Africa, away from the rapturous public gaze of the Victorians.

“David Livingstone is still mistakenly acclaimed as the first European to have reached the heart of Africa.  Though his reports revealed to an astounded Victorian public that the centre of the continent was not a hot, barren desert but lush, fertile land crossed by mighty rivers, he omitted any account of the explorers who aided and often preceded him.  Cutting through a jungle of intrigue and rivalry, The Other Livingstone tells, for the first time, the story of four men who played a crucial part in David Livingstone’s discoveries – a part he attempted.”
