993 The Quest for Timbuctoo, by Brian Gardner (read 8 Jan 1969) It has been some years since I have read an "explorer" book. This book is well put together, telling in detail of Robert Adams, an American sailor who was taken to Timbuctoo in February, 1811; Alexander Gordon Laing, a Scotsman, who reached Timbuctoo on Aug 13, 1826, but was killed 30 miles north of Timbuctoo on his way back to civilization; Rene Caille, a Frenchman, who in 1829 reached Timbuctoo, and then managed to get to Tangiers, and tell of his trip; and Heinrich Barth, a German who traveled for England, who reached Timbuctoo on Sept 7, 1853. I would like to go to Timbuctoo! ( )
