Quest Beyond the Sahara

This is an account,enthralling and, at times,horrifying,of three journeys into “the regions of darkness south of the Sahara”made at the beginning of the nineteenth century.The principal actors in this drama of exploration were Hugh Clapperton,Dixan Denham and Richard Lander;names virtually unknown in modern times.This is hard to understand,since their African discoveries are comparable in importance with those of Livingstone,Stanley,Burton and Baker whose travels took place a quarter of a century later.
