It is the great paradox of the modern world that at the very time when the world decided that people should not be coerced about their form of religion, it also decided that they should be coerced about their form of education. — G. K. Chesterton

With Stanley on the Congo - M. Douglas



H.M. Stanley was the first European to transverse the African continent by way of the Congo river. After his return to England, he was recruited by the King of Belgium to found settlements and set up trading stations. This book begins when Stanley returns to the Congo and follows his adventures during the actual colonization of the region, ending with his dramatic rescue of Pasha Emin.
