Buchbeschreibung Random House LCC US Sep 2002, 2002. Taschenbuch. Zustand: Neu. Neuware - In 1893, defying every convention of Victorian womanhood, Mary Kingsley set off alone for West Africa to collect botanical specimens. Unaccompanied except for native guides, she plunged boldly into forbidding jungles, often the first European-and almost always the first white woman-ever to arrive. Undaunted by tales of ferocious cannibals, she made friends with the tribes she met and collected priceless samples of flora and fauna. Along the way she fought off crocodiles with a paddle and hit a leopard over the head with a pot. When she fell into a trap lined with sharp sticks, she was saved by her voluminous crinolines-for she always dressed like a lady. Travels in West Africa is a book as vivid and unforgettable as the extraordinary woman herself. 'The charm of West Africa is a painful one: it gives you pleasure when you are out there, but when you are back here it gives you pain by calling you . . . Come back, come back, this is your home.'-Mary Kingsley National Geographic Adventure Classics is a series that celebrates the '100 greatest adventure books of all time,' as compiled by a panel of experts for National Geographic Adventure.
