Born in an overcrowded slum near Glasgow in 1813,David Livingstone spent his boyhood and youth working twelve and a half hours a day in a cotton mill.Yet he still found time to educate himself,and eventually qualify as a doctor.He went to Africa as a medical missionary in 1841 and stayed for thirty years,returning home only twice for a total of two years.Published to coincide with the centenary of Livingstone’s death in 1873.
