Livingstone's 1840s expedition into Africa, the "Dark Continent", caught the public's imagination. In 1864 he returned to Africa and all but disappeared. Public interest ran so high, that in 1869 the publisher of the New York Herald commissioned reporter Henry Stanley to go and find him. This book is Stanley's account of his adventure, and the moment he found Livingstone, in which he uttered the famous words: "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?"
'My Kalulu' is a romance about an African prince forced into slavery and is based upon knowledge acquired by the author during his journey in search of Dr. Livingstone, which began in 1871. Stanley is most often remembered as the man who asked, after having located the missing missionary-explorer, "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?"
This narrative discusses the fundamentalist Muslim uprisings which happened in central Africa in the late 1800's.
