In incident, suffering and privation, this was perhaps the most extraordinary of all journeys in Africa. Stanley's course was up the Congo, and its Northern tributaries, through the terrible Central Forest, among the Pygmies to Ruwenzoro, Lake Albert Edward and Albert Nyanzas; homeward through Unjoro to the East Coast at Zanzibar. Additional postage may be necessary US$578
