Equator Crossings: Travelogue Extraordinary is set against a backdrop of nineteenth-century Africa, Zanzibar, Europe and Oman. An upstage American press magnate's single three-letter-word telegram to his British competitor leads Henry Morton Stanley to 999 gruelling days of exploration in a quest to discover and define the watersheds of Africa's two gigantic rivers, the Nile and the Congo. This geographical and scientific feat, that drastically changed the economic and political history of the world, now provides an epic narrative of adventure, travel and romance.
