Into Africa by Martin Dugard

In the mid-1800s, David Livingstone set off across Africa looking for the source of the Nile and didn’t come out for years. Henry Morton Stanley, funded by James Gordon Bennett, Jr., of the New York Herald, followed, and with the words, “Dr. Livingstone, I presume?” succeeded in finding the famous explorer. Into Africa tells the stories of both Stanley and Livingstone, focusing on Stanley’s quest. I found it to be very well written and covered everything in detail. I recommend it to adults interested in Africa, exploration, or the story of David Livingstone.
