The Last Blank Spaces : Exploring Africa and Australia, Paperback / softback Book

The Last Blank Spaces : Exploring Africa and Australia Paperback / softback


The challenge of opening Africa and Australia to British imperial influence fell to a coterie of proto-professional explorers who sought knowledge, adventure, and fame but often experienced confusion, fear, and failure.

Kennedy follows the arc of these explorations, from idea to practice, intention to outcome, myth to reality.
