It had to be really difficult to make such an historic expedition so boring and tedious. The death (and illness) of Mrs. Livingstone was about two paragraphs long. Overly descriptive of flora and rocks and underly descriptive of the drama and pathos of what could be considered an epic journey. I mainly read it to get some background before reading Stanley's book about his expedition. Pretty much a real waste of time. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0715630873, Hardcover)

Commissioned during Britain’s golden age for expeditions to chart the Zambesi river for minerals and trade, David Livingstone left England in 1858 for what is today Zimbabwe and discovered an area whose sharp contrast between misery and natural beauty bewitched him. Outraged by the racial injustice he found during the eight-year expedition, Livingstone wrote this gripping account in a refreshingly contemporary style. Worthy of the best writers of the time, the book was an instant success and turned him into one of Britain's most famous public persona.
