Blood River

Blood River - Tim Butcher

Blood River

**THE NUMBER ONE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER**

A compulsively readable account of an African country now virtually inaccessible to the outside world and one journalist's daring and adventurous journey.

When war correspondent Tim Butcher was sent to cover Africa in 2000 he quickly became obsessed with the idea of recreating H.M. Stanley's famous nineteenth century trans-Africa expedition - but travelling alone.

Despite warnings that his plan was 'suicidal', Butcher set out for the Congo's eastern border with just a rucksack and a few thousand dollars hidden in his boots. Making his way in an assortment of vessels including a motorbike and a dugout canoe, helped along by a cast of unlikely characters, he followed in the footsteps of the great Victorian adventurers.

Butcher's journey was a remarkable feat, but the story of the Congo, told expertly and vividly in this book, is more remarkable still.

`A masterpiece' John Le Carre

`Extraordinary, audacious, completely enthralling' William Boyd

`A remarkable marriage of travelogue and history, which deserves to make Tim Butcher a star for his prose, as well as his courage' Max Hastings
