David Livingstone Family Letters.1841–1856


David Livingstone’s letters are the most important source of information about his activities,beliefs and opinions.The present collection,drawn chiefly from family archives,covers not only the whole of his career as a missionary in Bechuanaland,but also his first great crossing of the continent from Loanda to Quilimane.Vivid and sometimes extremely outspoken,they contain much detail about his relations with fellow-missionaries,Boers and Native chiefs,and about his own journeys into the interior.A two-volume set of great importance to the historian of Livingstonia history.
