Livingstone by Tim Jeal( Book )

64 editions published between 1973 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in an overcrowded slum near Glasgow in 1813, David Livingstone spent his boyhood and youth working in a cotton mill. Yet he still found time to educate himself and eventually became a doctor. He went to Africa as a medical missionary in 1841 and stayed for thirty years. Missionary, geographer, astronomer, ethnologist, anthropologist, chemist, and botanist, he discovered the Victoria Falls and the source of the Congo and made the first authenticated European crossing of the continent. Published to coincide with the centenary of Livingstone's death in 1873, this book is a comprehensive biography of his life which uses an abundance of new source material to understand the man and separate him from the deeply ingrained legend
Explorers of the Nile : the triumph and tragedy of a great Victorian adventure by Tim Jeal( Book )

29 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 2,044 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nothing obsessed explorers of the mid-nineteenth century more than the quest to discover the source of the White Nile. It was the planet's most elusive secret, the prize coveted above all others. Between 1856 and 1876, six larger-than-life men and one extraordinary woman accepted the challenge. Showing extreme courage and resilience, Richard Burton, John Hanning Speke, James Augustus Grant, Samuel Baker, Florence von Sass, David Livingstone, and Henry Morton Stanley risked their lives and reputations in the fierce competition. Award-winning author Tim Jeal deploys fascinating new research to provide a vivid tableau of the unmapped 'Dark Continent, ' its jungle deprivations, and the courage--as well as malicious tactics--of the explorers."--Publisher's website
Stanley : the impossible life of Africa's greatest explorer by Tim Jeal( Book )

22 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We think of Stanley as a cruel imperialist who connived with King Leopold II of Belgium in horrific crimes against the people of the Congo--and the journalist who conducted the most legendary celebrity interview in history, opening with, "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?" But these perceptions are not quite true, as biographer Jeal shows. With access to previously closed Stanley family archives, Jeal reveals the extent to which Stanley's career and life have been misunderstood and undervalued. Few have started life as disadvantaged as Stanley. Rejected by both parents and consigned to a Welsh workhouse, he emigrated to America as a penniless eighteen-year-old. Jeal re-creates Stanley's rise to success, his friendships and romantic relationships, and his life-changing decision to assume an American identity. Stanley's epic but unfairly forgotten African journeys are described, establishing the explorer as the greatest to set foot on the continent.--From publisher description

En busca de las fuentes del Nilo by Tim Jeal( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in Spanish and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A mediados del siglo XIX el lugar de nacimiento del Nilo seguía siendo uno de los mayores misterios del planeta, como lo había sido desde la época de los faraones. Fue entonces, entre 1856 y 1876, cuando siete grandes exploradores, entre los cuales figuraba una mujer -Burton, Speke, Grant, Baker, Florence von Sass, Livingstone y Stanley- arriesgaron sus vidas compitiendo por desvelar el secreto de las fuentes del gran río, en una serie de arriesgadas expediciones, puntuadas por sufrimientos, enfermedades y muertes, que les permitieron revelar al mundo el corazón de un África hasta entonces ignorada. Descubrieron lagos como el Tanganica y el Victoria, fueron los primeros blancos en llegar a los reinos de Buganda y Bunyoro, denunciaron el tráfico de esclavos y propusieron soluciones que, pensadas para mejorar la vida de los africanos, acabaron conduciéndolos a la sujeción colonial. Tim Jeal, premiado por los críticos por su biografía de Stanley, nos ofrece una apasionante visión, basada en nuevas investigaciones, de una gran epopeya
