The Niger and the Benueh: Travels in Central Africa

Nature volume 23, page 169 | Download Citation



THERE is a good deal that is interesting in M. Burdo's lively story of his voyage up the Niger and Benueh, partly in the company of Bishop Crowther. He gives many details of the various towns and villages he visited on the banks of the two rivers, and of the appearance and habits of the people he met with, all welcome information in a region on which our information is even yet comparatively meagre. M. Burdo's journey was made in 1878.
