Publisher's Summary

FNH audio presents an unabridged reading of How I Found Livingstone.
In 1866 Dr David Livingstone entered the dark continent of Africa in search for the source of the river Nile and disappeared. In 1869 Henry M. Stanley, funded by the New York Herald drove his expedition into the heart of Africa to find and relieve Livingstone. Stanley's journey became a true-life adventure. Adversity of every kind stood in his way. Starvation, inundation, murderous natives, mutiny, thieves, extortionists, murderers, slavers, and even becoming embroiled in a war. Despite these problems, Stanley found his quarry and uttered the immortal words: "Dr Livingstone I presume?" This is the story as told by Stanley himself.

My goodness this is long

I don't recall how long it took Stanley to find Livingstone, but this feels like an account told in real time. Everything is covered -- tribes, flora and fauna, insects, weather, landscape. I honestly feel this could be cut in half and nothing essential would be lost. Having said this, if you plan on recreating Stanley's adventure or are just especially interested in it, this is a must have.
