About this title:

Synopsis: It was in the year 1849, at the expiration of the Punjaub campaign, under Lord Gough, where I had been actively engaged as a subaltern officer in the (so-called) fighting brigade of General Sir Colin Campbell’s division of the army, adding my mite to the four successive victorious actions—Ramnugger, Sadoolapore, Chillianwallah, and Guzerat—that I first conceived the idea of exploring Central Equatorial Africa.

Book Description: In the 1850s John Hanning Speke made two expeditions to Africa, the first to Somalia inspiring the second to East Africa. This 1864 book presents his memoirs of both ventures, and his identification of Lake Victoria as the source of the White Nile, a claim verified only after his death.
