Relive all the thrills and adventure of Alan Moorehead's classic bestseller "The White Nile" -- the daring exploration of the Nile River in the second half of the nineteenth century, which was at that time the most mysterious and impenetrable region on earth. Capturing in breathtaking prose the larger-than-life personalities of such notable figures as Stanley, Livingstone, Burton and many others, "The White Nile" remains a seminal work in tales of discovery and escapade, filled with incredible historical detail and compelling stories of heroism and drama.
