Synopsis: In less than four years Edouard Foa covered 7200 miles, mostly on foot--from the Zambezi delta on Africa's east coast to the mouth of the Congo on the west. He risked every form of tropical disease and death from dangerous game and the unreliability of early guns. Foa succeeded in his efforts to create for the Paris Museum one of the finest collections of African animals and plants in the world. his account is full of hard, almost fatally earned bush knowledge. Frederick lee's able translation boosted this entertaining book to U.S. prominence (and two printings) in 1899.
