The Strong Brown God.


The River Niger was an enigma until the late eighteenth century:its source was known but not its course.In some maps it evaporated into the Sahara,in others drained into lake Tchad,or simply vanished,as unconquered as the diseases lurking within West Africa.Until 1795.Then,a young Scots doctor named Mungo Park,in an astonishing journey,discovered the upper Niger-and the mystery deepend.The river now appeared to flow into the centre of the continent. Read about it.
