In 1841, Livingstone left for Africa as a medical missionary, where he would stay for thirty years. In that time, he became a missionary geographer, ethnologist, chemist, botanist, astronomer, anthropologist, discoverer of Victoria Falls and the source of the Congo, and the first to cross the continent. Africans revered him as a virtual saint, while his academic accomplishments became Western legend.

It is hard to follow and the reader's Scottish accent gets old quite fast. I imagine there are much better books written about Livingston
what a dreadful performance. I never finished this, even though David Livingstone was a childhood hero. This narrator just doesn't sound anything but patronising dealing with Scottish subjects.
