The Exploration of Africa

The Exploration of Africa
Until the 19th century, Africa was known as the “Dark Continent,” speaking to the mystery and intrigue the vast lands posed to Europeans. Readers will gain insight into the explorers who unlocked Africa’s secrets and introduced the continent to the world. Delving into the expeditions from the 15th through the 19th centuries, the text follows a timeline of exploration by the Portuguese and British and their influence on various regions in Africa. Informative sidebars and fact boxes throughout the book discuss how explorers faced disease, starvation, deadly insects, and scorching temperatures, giving readers a glimpse into the hardships and dangers that posed daily threats to Europeans far from home. Illustrations and photos with detailed captions help readers to better understand the “scramble for Africa,” and its lasting effects to this day.
