En busca de las fuentes del Nilo

La siguiente recomendación es un libro de narrativa de viajes titulado En busca de las fuentes del Nilo, ha sido escrito por Tim Jeal, editado por Crítica, está en castellano, cuenta con un total de 656 páginas y un precio de 34 euros.

En el siglo XIX, el lugar del nacimiento del Nilo era uno de los grandes misterios de nuestro planeta, lo mismo que había ocurrido desde la época de los faraones. En aquel momento, entre 1856 y 1876, un grupo compuesto de siete exploradores arriesgaron sus vidas para descubrir el misterio.

Entre esas personas se encontraban Burton, Florence von Sass, Speke, Grant, Baker, Stanley y Livingstone, todos ellos compitiendo por revelar el secreto de las fuentes del río, con diferentes expediciones acompañadas de enfermedades y muertes que sirvieron para revelar a todo el mundo lo que era África, un continente ignorado por prácticamente el resto del planeta.

En estas expediciones se descubrieron lagos como el Tanganica y el Victoria, se convirtieron en los primeros blancos en llegar a los reinos de Bunyoro y Buganda y denunciaron el tráfico de esclavos entre muchos otros acontecimientos. Gracias a Tim Jeal contamos con una apasionante visión de estos periplos, basados en los resultados de recientes investigaciones que no podemos perdernos.

    First off I want to say fantastic blog! I
    had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior
    to writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or
    tips? Cheers!

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very
    difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual
    appeal. I must say you have done a superb job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Safari.
    Exceptional Blog!

    Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d
    figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links
    or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My
    website covers a lot of the same subjects as
    yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you are interested feel free to send me an email. I
    look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by the
    way!
