Mr. Stanley, I Presume? by Alan Gallop
Book DescriptionFamous for having found the great missionary and explorer Dr David Livingstone on the shores of Lake Tanganyika and immortalised as the utterer of perhaps the four most often quoted words of greeting of all time - 'Dr Livingstone, I presume?' - Henry Morton Stanley was himself a man who characterised the great wave of exploring fever that gripped the nineteenth century.

UK Kirkus Review » The bombastic, bullying, belligerent and unbelievably brave African explorer Henry Morton Stanley was born "John Rowlands, Bastard" in Denbighshire, a fact he concealed all his life. Driven by rejection and humiliation throughout an appalling childhood in a Welsh orphanage, he escaped as a teenager to reinvent himself in America and become a front-rank journalist. His great moment of fame, as all the world knows, came when he was to speak the four best-known words ever uttered by any intrepid explorer, rendering himself immediately immortal! But there was much more to Stanley than that: his expedition in 1887 to rescue the dodgy Emin Pasha from the clutches of the murderous Mahdi is as thrilling as anything in Boys' Own fiction. Not a nice man perhaps, but a real hero and brilliantly recreated here as a simply corking page-turner. (Kirkus UK)
