“The Daring Heart of David Livingstone” by Jay Milbrandt
Unfortunately, the story as presented here is fairly dry and uninspiring. It is precise, accurate, and thorough. However, for such a fascinating event, the account here is a slog. And, the fact that the events recounted here are frustrating and disheartening, it does not make for an easy read.
I am now inspired to seek out Stanley’s account. Perhaps it would be a better read recounting these important events.
