We are constantly working on new titles. Here is what we have in the works now. As with all of our titles, these new books are all true, first person accounts – and every one of them is great story!

In Darkest Africa: Or the Quest, Rescue, and Retreat of Emin Pasha Governor of Equatoria In Darkest Africa: Or the Quest, Rescue, and Retreat of Emin Pasha Governor of Equatoria
By Henry M. Stanley

This was to be Stanley's last expedition to Africa. He was charged with rescuing Emin Pasha (Viceroy), who had been appointed a governor in the southern Sudan by the British, and had been forced to retreat to the Lake Albert (now northern Uganda) by the uprising led by an Islamic holy man. In 1888 Stanley journeyed up the Congo and to the lake, reaching Emin, who refused to leave. Eventually persuaded by Stanley, they proceeded to the Indian Ocean by way of the Semliki River which was found to connect Lake Albert with Lake Edward. Both volumes of the original are included in this single edition. Read More...

Missionary Travels and Researches in South Africa: Including a Sketch of Sixteen Years' Residence in the Interior of Africa Missionary Travels and Researches in South Africa: Including a Sketch of Sixteen Years' Residence in the Interior of Africa
By David Livingstone

The Christian missionary and explorer Dr. Livingstone was among the first Europeans to penetrate into the interior of Africa on his own. He faced pestilence, animal attacks, and the brutal traffic in human beings that he was determined to eradicate. From South Africa, he traveled north to the Kalahari Desert in 1849, on to the west coast and then to the east coast. He saw fertile river valleys with abundant animal life and a variety of tribes -- not to mention the famous falls, which he named Victoria. Livingstone has a sly wit too, challenging the lion's place as "King of Beasts." Absorbing reading! Both volumes of the original are included in this single edition. Read More...

The Lake Regions of Central Africa: From Zanzibar to Lake Tanganyika The Lake Regions of Central Africa: From Zanzibar to Lake Tanganyika
By Richard Francis Burton

The multi-talented English explorer Sir Richard Burton describes his three-year voyage throughout Central Africa from 1856 to 1859. In an attempt to interest both the scholar and the common reader, Burton mingles accounts of his own adventures with more scientific observations. Burton's fascinating chronicle contains detailed geographic and socio-cultural information, as well as commentary which is often offensive but always interesting to scholars of colonial Africa. Lake Regions of Central Africa is considered a prime example of an explorer's journal. Both volumes of the original are included in this single edition. Read More...

Wanderings in West Africa: From Liverpool to Fernando Po Wanderings in West Africa: From Liverpool to Fernando Po
By Richard Francis Burton

Richard Burton proves once again his ability to write something interesting on any subject in this narrative of his trip from Liverpool to Fernando Po (Equatorial Guinea) in the early 1860's. The book is laid out chronologically, following his meandering progress down the west coast of Africa. Of course Burton stumbles upon many an adventure, as he inquires deeply into everything he encounters, not content to just pass through as an outsider. He is also able to expound on any subject, drawing on an incredible wealth of cultural and scientific knowledge to really flesh out his experiences. In two volumes. Both volumes of the original are included in this single edition. Read More...
