EXPLORERS: A Story of Fearless Outcasts

MARTIN DUGARD    Book Number: 83904    Product format: Paperback

In 1856 two intrepid adventurers, Richard Francis Burton and John Hanning Speke, set off to unravel a geographical unknown - the location of the River Nile's source. They travelled deep into a forbidding and uncharted African wilderness before arriving at two different solutions to the mystery, and parting ways as sworn enemies. The feud became an international sensation upon their return to England, and a public debate was scheduled to decide whose theory was correct. What followed was a massive spectacle with an outcome no-one could have forseen. A New York Times bestselling book which looks at the Promised Land and also that place within ourselves. 290pp in paperback, US First Edition 2014.
