An amazing story. Sir Samuel Baker was one of the early explorers along the Nile. He purchased a young girl at a slave auction, who later became his wife. This book tells of their travels in North Africa. I am not usually a big fan of biographies, but these were people worth reading about. By the end, you just wish you could have met them.
