David Livingstone picked John Kirk for the double post of botanist and medical officer to the expedition to ascend the Zambesi river and prospect the unknown interior in order to ascertain its possibilities for British trade and settlement. Kirk was David Livingstone's lieutenant in Africa for more than five years, becoming his trusted friend. Livingstone's personality dominates this book, which reprints several of the explorer's letters.
