Advert Description

Stalked by crocodiles, charged by hippos, attacked by African killer bees, 'To Timbuktu' is the tale of the first descent of the Niger River in West Africa.  In 1991 author Mark Jenkins, along with three companions and an intuitive African guide, set out to find the lost source of the Niger.  And yet 'To Timbuktu' is far more than an adventure book, it is the story about the meaning of friendship, fear, struggle, loss and, tragically, death.  Interweaving the tales of his own journey with the stories of the early explorers who tried to reach Timbuktu, Jenkins examines the 'why' of adventure.  Why do humans risk their lives for seemingly futile goals?  'To Timbuktu'has the answers.

To Timbuktu - A Journey down the Niger by Mark Jenkins - Hardback with dust jacket - Published by Robert Hale in 1998 - 222pp.  Dust jacket condition: good with just a few minor scratches and indentations.  Book condition: very good with tight binding
