Description

David Livingstone was a Scottish missionary and one of the greatest English explorers who had crossed the African continent during the mid-19th century. This book was intriguing because it contains the last journals of David Livingstone in central Africa, from 1865 to his death and it continued by a narrative of his last moments and sufferings. The journals were obtained from his faithful servants, Chuma and Susi. Moreover, on the last page there was a colored map of forest plateau of Africa, which shows the great rivers and lakes discovered and explored by Dr. Livingstone. It clearly showed his route between 1851 and 1873. Dr. Livingstone was important when thinking about Black Britons because he shows that many Britons not only civilized the local people through trade but also publicized the horrors of slave trade in the Britain.
