A Resource For Dark Continent.

Bibliography of African Explorer's Books

This document lists publications by African explorers from the period relevant to
the Dark Continents RPG. Many can be found as text files on the internet, some
are still in publication and can be purchased through a reputable bookstore or
online via Amazon.

For anyone trying to get a feel for the period I would particularly recommend
Stanley's account of his journey through the Dark Continent, available in two
volumes as modern reprints from Dover Books.
