First reported in 1872, Stanley's famous four words immediately entered popular culture, and the meeting which they recall became much mythologized. But the truth behind the American reporter's discovery of David Livingstone, presumed dead after five years of travelling, is complicated. This book offers an eye-opening glimpse into Livingstone's African expedition, his collaboration with slave-traders, the circumstances of the meeting itself and its influence on British and American culture, from films to jigsaw puzzles.
