last journey was an expedition to Africa in search of the sources
of the Nile which he began in 1865, funded by the Royal Geographical
Society. Six years later he rejected Stanley's help and began
that final, doomed trek from which there could be no return. The
authors have followed his footsteps in the most authentic detail
yet achieved, seeking some meaning to the enigma. The log of Livingstone's
journey is deftly interposed with a finely crafted account of
their own trials and tribulations; perhaps because they have written
as individuals, they provide a fascinating breadth of perspective
and, unconsciously, reveal much of the tension and internal conflict
that gave depth to their quest. Livingstone was buried at Westminster
Abbey, April 1874.
