About this Item

First Dutton edition. With 35 black and white maps and other illustrations. 8vo, in the original illustrated paper wrappers. xii, 419. A very good, clean copy. "Forbath has dared set foot where no earlier writer dared to tread. Others have followed a favorite African explorer or stream in the name of adventure and insight, but Forbath is the first to attempt the ambitious task of putting them all together. In a swiftly moving narrative, he re-creates the questions asked by generations of western sailors and hikers. Forbath has done a fine job of putting together the pieces of the puzzle he found while he watched the silvery gray water and listed to the sounds of silence at Stanleyville" ("Washington Post").
