Pioneers in West Africa


This is not just a factually based book of the various men and women who opened-up West Africa, but it is also a book of daring and thrilling adventure. Set out in 12 chapters, it opens with a chapter on how and why the white man went to Africa, and then focuses on the exploits of Mungo Park, Bruce Denham, Clapperton, Richard and John Lander, and their efforts to discover and tame the River Niger.
