This is Sir Samuel Baker's account of his discovery of the last great source of the Nile, Speke and Grant having established Lake Victoria N'yanza as the source of the White Nile and Bruce discovering the source of the Blue. The waters of Victoria N'yanza flow into the basin of Albert N'yanza, which Speke and Grant were not permitted to visit, and the latter adds the accumulation of its watershed to the former to create the great White Nile, flowing massively from Albert N'yanza. The importance of the debate over the source of the Nile, combined with Baker's very readable writing style, made his books enormously popular, with the result that they were reprinted a great many times over the years.
