In a narrative that reads like a novel, Byron Farwell tells the story of this complex man who made a major contribution o the world’s knowledge. He describes his bitter childhood, his coming to America where he found a friend and a name, his service in the American Civil War, his African adventures, and his late but happy marriage.
