These are the first four titles in Duckworth's new "Discoverers" series, which will reprint the travel writings of popular authors. Doyle's volume tells of his stay in Rhodesia and Kenya in 1928. Before travelling to Africa, Stanley made extensive journeys through the Unites States and Asia, which he recounts here. Livingstone recalls his search for the source of the Zambesi River, while Verne documents early expeditions. Some of these volumes include period illustrations.
