In the Heart of Africa


Read by Steven Seitel

(5 stars; 3 reviews)

A wonderfully readable condensation of two of Baker's earlier, longer works recounting his self-sponsored expeditions into the Dark Continent to discover the sources of the Nile: The Albert N'Yanza, Great Basin Of The Nile (1866) and The Nile Tributaries Of Abyssinia (1867). And, of course, to bag a few elephants along the way. (Summary by Steven Seitel) (9 hr 19 min)
