DARK SAFARI

THE LIFE BEHIND THE LEGEND OF HENRY MORTON STANLEY

BY JOHN BIERMAN

PUBLISHED BY JOHN CURTIS, HODDER AND STOUGHTON, LONDON 1991.



Although, here in Scotland, David Livingston is known by nearly the whole population, Henry M. Stanley seems to be only a footnote to the exploits of Livingston, the life of H. M. Stanley as an intrepid explorer should not be forgotten. This book shatters this self perpetuating myth and brings the Anglo American explorer back to the forefront of African Exploration.

Stanley had a very different view of Africans compared to Livingston, while Livingston was a more gentle and loved European in Africa, Stanley used the whip and the gun to get his bearers to do exactly as he wanted.


In particular his leadership of the The Emin Pasha Relief Expedition drew controversy, the expedition came to be both celebrated, for its ambition in crossing "darkest Africa", and notorious, for the bloodshed and death left in its wake.
