About the Book

Uncommon Traveler: Mary Kingsley in Africa 

Mary Kingsley spent her childhood in a small house on a lonely lane outside London, England.

Her mother was bedridden, her father rarely home, and Mary served as housekeeper, handyman, nursemaid, and servant. Not until she was thirty years old did Mary get her chance to explore the world she’d read about in her father’s library.

In 1893, she arrived in West Africa, where she encountered giant Xying insects, crocodiles, hippos, and brutal heat. Mary endured the hardships of the equatorial country—and thrived.
