The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent condition, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

Soldier, sailor, newspaper correspondent, explorer, pauper, rich man, deserter, idolized hero. Henry Morton Stanley was all these things. Probably no man ever led a more harrowing, venturesome life than the discoverer of the lost Dr. Livingstone in the heart of Africa. In a swiftly paced narrative, author Robert Edmond Alter tells the story of Stanley, from his impoverished childhood in a British workhouse to his creation of an African empire.
