RIVER OF THE GODS: Genius, Courage, and Betrayal in the Search for the Source of the Nile

In the 19th century, there was a frenzy of interest in ancient Egypt. At the same time, European powers sent off waves of explorers intending to map the unknown corners of the globe. Richard Burton and John Hanning Speke were sent to discover the source of the Nile in the name of England. With the help of their guide, Sidi Mubarak Bombay, Speke claimed the credit. 16 pages of photos.
