The Source of the Nile by Richard Burton

The Source of the Nile. The Lake Regions of Central Africa. A Picture of Exploration. Folio Society edition of Burton’s account of his exploration of the lakes of central Africa and his search, as the first white european to do so, for the source of the Nile. “This remains Burton’s best and, in a field of writing of remarkably high standard, one of the best explorer’s journals ever written, for it deals not only with matters of geography and ethnography, but with a complex and potentially explosive human relationship.”
