Overview:

The Daring Heart of David Livingstone : <p><b>The captivating, untold story of the great explorer, David Livingstone: his abiding faith and his heroic efforts to end the African slave trade</b></p> <p>Saint? Missionary? Scientist? Explorer?</p> <p>The titles given to David Livingstone since his death are varied enough to seem dubious - and with good reason. In view of the confessions in his own journals, <i>saint</i> is out of the question. Even <i>missionary</i> is tenuous,considering he made only one convert. And despite his fame as a scientist and explorer, Livingstone left his most indelible mark on Africa in an arena few have previously examined: slavery.</p> <p>His impact on abolishing what he called "this awful slave-trade" has been shockingly overlooked as the centerpiece of his African mission.</p> <p>Until now.</p> <i>The Daring Heart of David Livingstone</i> tells his story from the beginning of his time in Africa to the publicity stunt that saved millions after his death.
