Most widely held works by James Rennell
Travels in the interior districts of Africa by Mungo Park ( Book )
11 editions published between 1799 and 2000 in English and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mungo Park's account of his journeys into West Africa in 1795 and again in 1805 provided Europeans with their first reliable description of the interior of the continent. Though he failed in the object of his mission - to chart the course of the Niger River - he succeeded in leaving a unique record of everyday life before the exploitation of Africa by Europeans, as valuable today as it was then. His first-hand experiences of tribal justice, gold mining and the slave trade are recorded, as well as his own understated heroism, a story of courage, open-hearted friendship and betrayal
