First Footsteps in East Africa

Book cover
Captain Sir Richard Francis Burton was an English explorer, translator, writer, soldier, ethnologist, linguist, poet, and diplomat. He was known for his journeys and explorations all over Asia and Africa as well as his extraordinary knowledge of languages and cultures. One of the greatest Burton’s travels is a journey to Africa, when he was engaged by the Royal Geographical Society to explore the east coast of Africa and led an expedition guided by the locals which discovered Lake Tanganyika. "First Footsteps in East Africa" is one of the most exciting books written by Burton. This is a treasury of detailed information on Muslim beliefs, manners and morals. In addition it opens all the pleasures and perils of the desert. This work is a real wealth of geographic, ethnographic and linguistic information that will definitely be interesting for everyone who wants to know as much as possible about other cultures.
