Meet the Author
Born in England in 1827, John Hanning Speke ranks among the great nineteenth-century explorers of Africa. He is credited with the 1858 discovery of Lake Victoria in East Africa, one of the long-sought sources of the Nile. Because his claim was at first disputed, he undertook another expedition, with Captain James Grant, to confirm his original conclusion.
