Summary
Between 1856 and 1876, five explorers, all British, took on the seemingly impossible task of discovering the source of the White Nile. Using new research, Tim Jeal tells the story of these great expeditions, while also examining the tragic consequences the Nile search has had on Uganda and Sudan to this day
