How I Found Livingstone By Henry M. Stanley
eBook (ePub): $3.99
David Livingstone was a Scottish medical missionary and explorer of Africa who, after having gone missing, was famously "found" by "American" journalist Henry Stanley, giving rise... More > to the popular phrase, "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?"

Stanley, who was an adventurer himself, went on said mission in 1871 on behalf of the New York Herald.
