When President Thomas Jefferson chose Meriwether Lewis (1774-1809) to lead a group of explorers on a daring journey across the whole American continent, Lewis agreed -- as long as he could ask his good friend William Clark to be his co-leader. With the help of many Native American tribes, the explorers overcame great obstacles to reach the vast Pacific Ocean. From the river highways of the Missouri and Mississippi, to the grassy Great Plains full of buffalo, to the steep Rocky Mountains, to the dangerous rapids of the Columbia, the journey of Lewis and his friend Clark was one great American adventure.

David Livingstone The Wayward Vagabond in Africa

David Livingstone: The Wayward Vagabond in Africa is an expression of doubt about the raîson d’etre concerning the 19th Century explorers and missionaries in Africa. Led by David Livingstone, the Scottish explorer and missionary, they are said to have come to civilise “backward” Africans, which the author creatively re-imagines, arguing that it is far from the truth. Instead, their actions gave impetus to colonialism proper. In this book the omniscient narrator, Everywhere, is God’s special envoy mandated to witness history with far-reaching consequences for humanity. His investigation is to help nail David Livingstone on Judgment Day, much the same way St Peter chronicles events in the Book of Life. Read about how, Everywhere, the spirit rides on wind, walks on water, enters into his characters’ stream of consciousness and even discerns how they interpret the world around them. The novel retraces Livingstone’s early life, from his deprived childhood in Blantyre, Scotland; his ideological evolution and training in London and his dramatic sojourn in Monomotapa kingdom, which he half-believes is his destiny. The satirical tone in the novel aptly captures that delusional aspect of Livingstone’s “God-ordained” mission to the world.

"It was the 1860s, and slave traders were slipping across the seas between Zanzibar and Arabia. Irish surgeon Dr. William Edward Dillion [sic] hunted them down in British tall ships, tasked with the medical care for all on board - including rescued slaves from the captured trading vessels. When the great missionary David Livingstone went missing in central Africa in 1872, Dr. Dillon, grounded with a damaged ship, led the Livingstone East Coast Expedition as second-in-command. They marched 500 miles with badly needed medical supplies only to discover the worst: Livingstone was dead. ... Dillon met his death in the middle of Africa. But the circumstances around his death are labelled suspicious and a new expedition in 2004 sets off to find the answers."--Back cover.
