Well-researched, and with surprisingly cohesive and descriptive prose for a non-professional author. Mr Kryza brings a wealth of first hand experience and empathy to his task and does an admirable job presenting the facts, such as are known or knowable, within the context of the often overlooked early period of British African exploration, both foreshadowing and informing the imperial age to follow generations later. Definitely worthwhile.
