Author: Stephen Tomkins

Two hundred years after his birth, Tomkins assesses David Livingstone's life, impact, and legacy in this balanced and honest biography. Livingstone has gone down in history as a fearless explorer and missionary, who hacked his way through jungles to bring life and light to the people of Africa - as well as to free them from slavery. Now, for the first time, fascinating new evidence about his life and struggles has come to light in the letters and journals he left behind. Discover the man behind the Victorian icon - who he was and what he was actually like - in his very own words. (pb)
