    Into Africa review ´ 3 Into AfricaA short but informative book about exploration in Central Africa focusing on the Nile Niger Zambezi and Congo Rivers Reading about the travails of the men who did the exploration including Burton Livingstone and Stanley to name a few you begin to wonder why they would risk their lives Adventure commercial interests potential wealth and knowledge seemed to spur men on just as space has spurred the intrepid on in modern timesAs an introduction to the African explorations of the 19th century this book is a good beginning but it needs maps alhough there are some nice photos at the end

    Into Africa review ´ 3 Into AfricaI have read many history books but like the explorers in the early 19th century Africa was the “Dark Continent” when it came to my knowledge of its history “Into Africa” by author Thomas Sterling was a great choice to begin my personal explorationsThe book is broken into chapters each heralding one or two of the explorers who braved the uncharted regions of Africa Mr Sterling has also sectioned it by explorations focusing first on the Niger River and the efforts to find its source as well as the fabled city of Timbuktu Explorers focused on the great rivers of Africa and thus the rest of the book leads readers on expeditions to find the

    Into Africa review ´ 3 Into AfricaAn informative short history of exploration of Africa It is written in a dry textbook style and although it describes the dangers hardships and illnesses the explorers faced I never felt the sense of adventure As it is a brief introduction to the explorers' journeys it may inspire readers to pursue other books on explorations by these brave men The absence of maps made following their journeys very difficult At times they describes expeditions as heading east while I believed probably incorrectly that they were traveling west At the end of the book are random photos of places in Africa There is an easily noticeable mistake in my Kindle edition Included is an illustration labeled Timbuktu and a few pages after is the exact same drawing labeled Stanley Meeting Livingston

    Into Africa review ´ 3 Into AfricaA very brief overview of various explorers and their uests to map various rivers Too brief to teach much else than that if you went to Africa you died and the natives were exceptionally unfriendly They didn't necessarily kill you but you died nonetheless

    Into Africa review ´ 3 Into AfricaI always enjoy books about exploration this one is an overview of early European exploration of Africa One thing would have made it better MAPS This is always a pet peeve of mine If you are doing a work that is related to and particularly is about geographical exploration it is a crime not to include maps

    Into Africa review ´ 3 Into AfricaI almost uit reading this book about half way through It is about the various explorers who mapped the African continent but the first half had all the excitement of a high school history textbook I kept reading and found the second half about the Dutch colonists and Livingston and Stanley somewhat entertaining However it is strange to publish a book about exploration without a single map I kept going to Google Maps to find out where the explorers were If you don't already have detailed knowledge of Africa's river systems it is not at all clear what these people were exploring The back of the book had a gallery of pictures most taken in modern Africa One illustration appeared twice with two different captions one for 1860 and one for 1871 If you want to know about African exploration find a different book

    Into Africa review ´ 3 Into AfricaWell I guess it does what it says on the tin It walks us through several of the various European exploration missions into Africa and their “discoveries” of various geographical features A main theme is looking for the sources of various rivers namely the Nile and the Congo The book disappoints in that it is highly Eurocentric and fails to explore the impacts of exploration I think I picked this book up when Apple Books was offering a bunch of free picks I’m glad I read it because it offers a really interesting glimpse into a past time But when reading books on this topic in future I’ll seek out ones that handle the impacts of colonization in a well rounded way

    Into Africa review ´ 3 Into AfricaGood summaryThis is the first African historical treatise have read It serves uite well in describing the early history of the western invasions of Africa L was aware of Stanley and Livingston but almost nothing of their predecessorsAs such it is a good entry point should one want to study of this Zdark continent

    Into Africa review ´ 3 Into AfricaRevelation adventure bold courage stamina exploration and discovery are all presentAn exciting read It is difficult to relate our modern society to the explorers accounts as presented It is further puzzling to speculate on the absence of societal development in Africa being so unchallenged and obscure
