Last Expedition: Stanley’s Mad Journey Through the Congo
Daniel Liebowitz (au); Charles Pearson (au)
The harrowing true story of Henry Morton Stanley’s final trek across Africa to rescue Emin Pasha. The expedition took 3 years & cost thousands of lives as Stanley & his men hacked their way across the last great, unexplored territory in Africa: the forbidding Ituri forest. Advertised as a mission of mercy, Stanley’s secret agenda was territorial expansion on the model of Leopold’s Congo or the British East India Co. Although he expected it to be the crowning achievement in a career that had already made him “the greatest explorer in African history,” Stanley’s last expedition disintegrated into a nightmare of disease & starvation, desertion & rebellion, & brutality & savagery that brought to an end an era of European exploration in Africa that had lasted 100 years.
