“Mr. Stanley's narrative of his adventures, privations, sufferings, trials, dangers, and discoveries during his heroic quest and rescue of Emin Pasha is as moving and enthralling a tale as ever was told by man. It is, moreover, told with so genuine a modesty of temper, so transparent a fidelity to fact, so generous and eager a desire on the part of the leader of the expedition to give their due meed of praise and recognition to each and all of his subordinates, not excepting the humblest of his African followers, that the critic's task becomes merely one of unstinted admiration of the almost unexampled greatness of the deeds accomplished and the profound ethical interest of the narrative which describes them.”
