David Livingstone (1813-1873) has been revered as one of the world's greatest explorers and missionaries, the first European to cross Africa and the first to find Victoria Falls and the source of the Congo. Tim Jeal's masterful biography reveals the man behind the myth, one capable of ruthless cruelty as well as self-sacrifice and bravery, one dogged all his life by failure as well as success. Served as the basis for documentaries about Livingstone on the Discovery Channel and on BBC TV. Selected as one of the best books of the year by the New York Times Book Review and the Washington Post Book Review.
