Livingstone is perhaps the best-known missionary of them all. His attempts to find the source of the Nile and his famous meeting with Henry Morton Stanley have become the stuff of legend.

The truth behind the legend, however, is even more compelling. Drawing extensively from Livingstone's personal notes and letters, Rob Mackenzie unfolds the intensely human story of a man with a vision - to set souls free from slavery, both physically and spiritually, and to open up Africa to Christianity and lawful commerce

Livingstone has come to be regarded as a figure purely based on a few events, lost in legend, yet his tomb inscription reads 'Brought by faithful hands over land and sea here rests David Livingstone - missionary, traveller, philanthropist... for 30 years his life was spent in an unwearied effort to evangelise the native races, to explore the undiscovered secrets, to abolish the desolating slave trade of Central Africa where with his last words he wrote "all I can add in my solitude, is, may heaven's rich blessing come down on every one, American, English, or Turk, who will help to heal this open sore of the world." An amazing story awaits you on the first page.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The book carefully but thoroughly shows the man's desire to bring the worlds attention to the great wrong of the slave trade, and to do this his exploration of Africa would be a "newsworthy" globally recognized forum of acceptability, which would create the attention his endeavours demanded from the world. A very easy flowing read, well worth a least one read by anybody.--CLC Reviews
'an easy and absorbing read... Quite a man. Quite a heart. Quite a book.'--The Mercury
'a man of whom the human race can be justly proud. He shows us that courage, determination and faith are more than a match for life's great challenges.'--Bob Edmiston, Chairman, International Motors Group
