You’ve heard of Burton, Stanley, and Livingstone and their Victorian-era adventures in Africa. But you probably don’t recognize the name of Heinrich Barth. His five-year, 10,000-mile journey through North and Central Africa in 1849 ranks among the greatest in the annals of exploration. Told for the first time in A LABYRINTH OF KINGDOMS: 10,000 Miles through Islamic Africa, the story of Barth’s survival and triumph rivals Burton or Stanley for excitement and surpasses them in scientific achievements. And, author Steve Kemper share more about it on the Conversation Crossroad radio program.
