In the greatest adventure of the Victorian age, a famous explorer makes a heroic relief expedition to a beleaguered British outpost deep in the heart of Africa.
The British Empire, at its zenith, is shocked by the fall of Khartoum and the murder of General Gordon. But word reaches London that all is not lost; one garrison, commanded by the Emin Pasha, still holds out against the Mahdi leading the rebellion against the British in the Sudan. The Emin Pasha is hailed as a hero of mythic proportions, Gordon’s successor, and England’s hope. From the Queen to the mob, his rescue is demanded.
But only one man is up to the challenge of this mammoth expedition across 5,000 miles of the uncharted Congo, where no white man has walked: Henry Morton Stanley, a hero of amazing complexity and daring. Whatever the cost, Stanley will rescue the Emin Pasha.

Great stroy, Fantasticlly told but be aware...
Jepson, because he was the only one who kept his humanity throughout the ordeal.
When they caught the mule boy trying to desert. It was the turning point of the whole adventure.
Stanly. I would like to hear how he thought things turned out and if he thought it was a success or a failure.
The author librally use the N-word throughout the stroy. While it is historically accurate I think the story could have been told equally as well without using that offensive word. I cringed every time that it was said. I listen to books at work and several times I thought "I hope nobody heard that."
