'A German counterpart to Stanley's In Darkest Africa, this represents Peter's journey to find Emin Pasha on the Upper Nile, but approaching from Africa's east coast ... This work is wonderfully illustrated, particularly regarding the battles waged between the expedition and hostile tribes.'- Czech. Peters followed Pigott in exploring the Tana river and gained notoriety by his political activities to secure influence in the interior. This roused the British, in an effort to counteract his activities, to explore both Kenya Colony and Uganda.
