Sir Samuel White Baker is one of those larger-than-life heroes only the Victorians could invent. For too long, the British Empire has been denigrated and equated with arrogance at best and racial bigotry at worst. Samuel Baker transcends that. He was an explorer and naturalist, recording new species on his many travels; a big game hunter with huge expertise across continents; an engineer of skill and ingenuity; a general of ability; an administrator second to none; and an ardent opponent of African slavery. M. J. Trow, in this the first biography of Baker for twenty years, draws heavily on Baker's prolific writings to bring the extraordinary character of this Victorian adventurer and his achievements to life.

Book Description Discovery, 2010. Condition: New. The life of the explorer, naturalist, hunter, soldier, writer and colonial administrator Samuel White Baker (1821-93) reads like a novel by H Rider Haggard. Trow's gripping biography charts the extraordinary career of this energetic, multi-faceted Victorian. Drawing on official records and Baker's own prolific writings, it recounts his adventures in Africa and India, his devotion to his wife Florence, his ardent opposition to slavery, and his friendships with Henry Morton Stanley, John Speke, General Gordon, and Maharaja Duleep Singh.
