Dover has reprinted the epic story of the expedition undertaken by the journalist Henry Stanley at the expense of the New York Herald that led to the famous line: "Dr. Livingstone, I presume." The tale, which is conveyed in a snappy narrative style, is also a document of the intolerant and patronizing attitudes held by 19th-century Europeans toward other races and toward wilderness.
