Reading List: Explorations & Adventures In Equatorial Africa By Paul B. du Chaillu Recommended reading from the shelves of the Avaunt library

Paul B. du Chaillu, the author of Explorations & Adventures In Equatorial Africa, travelled more than 6,000 miles, shot and stuffed over 2,000 birds and, in his own words, “suffered fifty attacks of the African fever… Of famine, long-continued exposures to the tropical rains, and attacks of ferocious ants and venomous flies, it is not worth while to speak.”
