About the author (1989)

Guy Yeoman got his first taste of equatorial Africa as a young officer during World War II and succumbed to the age-old fascination of this ancient land. This gripping account, illustrated with many of his prize-winning photographs, traces the tribulations and achievements of the men who walked in the footsteps of Herodotus and carried away the prize: the discovery of the sources of the Nile and the snow-covered Rwenzori range of mountains, which gives rise to them. Guy Yeoman's great love and intimate knowledge of this part of Africa, where he lived and worked for many years, lend a particular poignancy to this thrilling story.
