Blue Nile: Ethiopia's River of Magic and Mystery

by Virginia Morell
 

Although Western explorers have been drawn to the beauty and mystery of the Blue Nile since Europeans first walked along the shores of Lake Tana centuries ago, the river was never fully mapped until thirty years ago. The river's predatory wildlife and the force of its waters are so daunting and perilous that as recently as 1962, no one had succeeded in journeying

Overview

Although Western explorers have been drawn to the beauty and mystery of the Blue Nile since Europeans first walked along the shores of Lake Tana centuries ago, the river was never fully mapped until thirty years ago. The river's predatory wildlife and the force of its waters are so daunting and perilous that as recently as 1962, no one had succeeded in journeying its length by boat. But that is the goal of the expedition that renowned biographer and journalist Virginia Morell takes readers on in this extraordinary narrative: to travel the Blue Nile's length by raft in a single, unbroken journey—from Ethiopia to the Sudan.
