Henry Morton Stanley is Britain's greatest land explorer of all time. Yet today he is remembered as a cruel imperialist in Africa. In this compelling biography, Tim Jeal reveals the truth about Stanley and shows how the Welsh-born workhouse boy has been misrepresented in previous accounts of his life. Jeal describes Stanley's dazzling trans-Africa journey, a heart-breaking epic of human endurance which solved the mystery of the sources of the Nile and the Congo. Then he movingly unveils a figure far more tragic, generous-hearted and chameleon-like than had ever been suspected.
