Mungo Park. Travels in the Interior of Africa.


“Travels in the interior of Africa” describes a journey through the present day states of Senegal and Mali,in the years 1795-1797.The dates and the places are important.They set Mungo Park at the very dawn of African exploration and in a corner of the continent which was to engage British interest only briefly.Park was out of context and overshadowed within a few decades of his travels,but the improbable setting of his tale and its inconsequential aftermath also help to account for its timeless quality.
