This legendary story of Stanley and Livingstone marks the onset of British colonization of Africa. Upon hearing that the famed British missionary and explorer David Livingstone is dead, Welsh-American investigative reporter sets out to find him. Along the way, he encounters the mysteries and people of the "dark continent," confirming ideas of racial superiority both Americans and British held toward Africans.
