The Rescue of Emin Pasha. The story of Henry M. Stanley and the Emin Pasha Relief Expedition,1887-1889.

£11.00

The rescue of Emin Pasha brilliantly recreates the expedition’s journey through the primitive hostility of an untamed continent,illuminating the personalities-often violently antipathetic to one another-of the people involved in the adventure,and giving stark reality to the almost unbelievable hardships they endured.It also fits the expedition into its true place in the jigsaw puzzle of conflicting interests which were at work during the climax of the colonialist struggle whch we now know as the scramble for Africa.
