    ePUB Mary Henrietta Kingsley ¼ A Hippo Banuet Kindle æ A Hippo PDF/EPUB ² ¼ hippo download, banuet book, A Hippo free, A Hippo Banuet EpubMary Kingsley was an 19th Century English scientific writer and explorer She wrote two books about her journeys through Africa and helped to change Europe's view of the African cultures and British ImperialismI had never heard of Mary Kingsley before I picked this book up and I think that is the greatest tragedy How many men have I heard of who travelled the world how many men I have read who spoke of daring deeds and exotic places And here we have a woman who travelled alone and of her own interest to a land that at the time appeared to

    ePUB Mary Henrietta Kingsley ¼ A Hippo Banuet Kindle æ A Hippo PDF/EPUB ² ¼ hippo download, banuet book, A Hippo free, A Hippo Banuet EpubMHK is not only the uintessential Victorian female explorer but she writes in a style I find hilarious Its hard to describe accurately but to read it in modern times it comes across as sort of pretentious or pompous using a lot of words I only vaguely understand but also in a self deprecating sort of way which just makes her descriptions amusingPage 4 Geographical research in this region is fraught with difficulty I find owing to different tribes calling one in the same place by different names; and I am sure the Royal Geographical Society ought to insert amongst their hints that every traveller in this region should carefully learn every separate native word or set of words signifying I don't know four villages and two rivers I have come across out here solemnly set down with various forms of this statement

    ePUB Mary Henrietta Kingsley ¼ A Hippo Banuet Kindle æ A Hippo PDF/EPUB ² ¼ hippo download, banuet book, A Hippo free, A Hippo Banuet EpubAn interesting insight into colonial Africa from the perspective of a female adventurerMy favourite of these short tales was the final one Fight with a Leopard It was the most amusing and Kingsley's attitude towards animals is most keenly shownOverall I think this collection lack cohesion The subject matter and writer are certainly interesting but the 4 stories don't tie together in any kind of chronology and it feel like a significant amount of context has been lost in presenting them in this format

    ePUB Mary Henrietta Kingsley ¼ A Hippo Banuet Kindle æ A Hippo PDF/EPUB ² ¼ hippo download, banuet book, A Hippo free, A Hippo Banuet EpubI've never heard of Mary Kingsley before natural history really isn't my forte but I was intrigued by the description of a fearless pioneering Victorian female explorer The writing is very lively and beautifully conjures up images of West African rivers and forests I'm uite tempted to read the full version of Travels in West African not least because I'd like to know about the explorer herself
