INTO AFRICA The Epic Adventures of Stanley and Livingstone

by | Read by Simon Jones

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2003

This book brings to vivid life the improbable journey of Henry Morton Stanley into central Africa to discover and rescue Dr. David Livingstone, who had been lost for several years. The author leaves nothing out, including the earlier explorations of Livingstone and other British explorers, and the helter-skelter, failure-laden life led by Stanley until his exploit. This is high adventure at its best. Simon Jones holds the listener's attention throughout. The voices he gives to the main characters work well--open and confident even in the most dire circumstances for Livingstone, and gruff and hale with a minor note of doubt for Stanley. An excellent production is marred only by the lack of end-of-CD signals and a tendency to end individual CDs mid-paragraph. R.E.K. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 03]
