But what if a man like this really lived?It turns out he did, and there were two of them, both Victorian explorers. The first is Richard Franics Burton, an adventurer who learned 29 languages, went undercover as a Muslim on a pilgrimage to Mecca, and wrote 50 books on topics ranging from a translation of the Kama Sutra to a manual on bayonet exercises.The Second is Sir Richard Stanley, who led a massive expedition through Africa to find Dr.

Livingston. By the time of his death in 1904 he had explored much of the continent and developed much of the interior. Stanleys greatest expedition was his 1874-1877 crossing of Africa on foot to the mouth of the Congo, traveling over 7,000 miles and contending with the threat of malaria, unknown wild animals in the jungle, unfriendly tribesmen, harsh weather conditions, worries about running out of food, and any number of incomprehensible threats to their lives on that dangerous voyage.Learn the lives of these two extraordinary men and how a beer pitchman could never hope to live up to them.
