    The life of the explorer, naturalist, hunter, soldier, writer and colonial administrator Samuel White Baker (1821-93) reads like a novel by H Rider Haggard. Trow's gripping biography charts the extraordinary career of this energetic, multi-faceted Victorian. Drawing on official records and Baker's own prolific writings, it recounts his adventures in Africa and India, his devotion to his wife Florence, his ardent opposition to slavery, and his friendships with Henry Morton Stanley, John Speke, General Gordon, and Maharaja Duleep Singh.
