Summary
"In 1871, American writer Henry M. Stanley traveled from Zanzibar to Tanganyika in search of the missing explorer Dr. David Livingstone at the behest of the New York Herald's impresario editor. In 1872, Stanley emerged from central Africa to announce that he had met with Livingstone on Tanganyika Lake, restored his health, and supplied his next journey. The words he presumably uttered upon meeting Livingstone became one of the most famous phrases of the nineteenth century, and his narrative of the trip, How I Found Livingstone, was an international bestseller. In Finding Dr. Livingstone, Mathilde Leduc-Grimaldi and James L. Newman transcribe and annotate the entirety of Stanley's trip documentation, now owned by the Roi Baudouin Foundation in Brussels, Belgium. They thus make available in print for the first time a trove that includes worker contracts, vernacular plant names, maps, ruminations on life, lines of poetry, bills of lading-all scribbled in his field notebooks. This book is vastly more expansive and different in emphasis from Stanley's version, with invaluable insights into the experiences of his African carriers, soldiers, and servants. This book will be a crucial resource for those interested in the Victorian era, exploration, the scientific knowledge of the time, and the peoples and conditions of today's Tanzania prior to its colonization by Germany"--
