Livingstone believed in 1856 that he had opened Central Africa to industry, commerce, and Christianity. He summoned Britain to plant a settlement that should destroy the slave trade by teaching the Christian faith to Africans and by developing the wealth of the country. Mackenzie led the mission that tried with Livingstone's help to plant this settlement.
This book describes the ensuing tragedy; a tragedy that nevertheless helped to found Nysaland.
