The Conquest of the Niger by Land and Sea.


For countless thousands of years the people of Africa have lived alongside the Great River Niger. But until the early years of the last century the source, direction and outlet of this great steam remained a mystery to the outside world, The Niger actualy runs for over 2000 miles passing through a land of humid tropical heat, dense forests of cotton trees, then endless wastes of mangrove swamp, where it finaly reaches the Atlantic in the Bight of Benin. The author with a thorough maritime background conquers this majic area.
