I despise hunting, although I do eat meat and I realize animals are killed. This book was mainly about killing elephants and it was just awful! The writing was fine, I just found all the killing really depressing.

Samuel Baker is so easy to read. He describes a world that no longer exists. The only way for someone in the 21st century to experience what Baker did, is for that person to read his books. The world he explored has ceased to exist. Africa, in many ways, is a violent and unsafe place today, but it is so very different than it was back in the mid- to late 1800s. Read it for an accurate depiction of Victorian Exploration and Africa. Be respectful and enjoy it with a mind to its time and setting. Place your 21st century biases on hold. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am sure you will too.… (mere)

One of the most classic exploration in history was that of Baker and his wife travels up the Nile to its origins near Lake Victoria. Must have in the science and exploration library. I have two different American First Editions, First Printing. See the other, OD Case version they are quite different prints from 1868, but main block of texts and litho prints is very similar.
