The Blue Nile by Alan Moorehead( Book )
1 edition published in 1962 in English and held by 2,236 libraries worldwide

In The Blue Nile, Alan Moorehead continues the classic, thrilling narration of adventure he began in The White Nile, depicting this exotic place through the lives of four explorers so daring they can be considered among the world's original adventurers -- each acting and reacting in separate expeditions against a bewildering background of slavery and massacre, political upheaval and all-out war. -- Publisher description
