I found reading Mungo Park's 1795 book of his travels in the interior districts of Africa fascinating reading. He evidently was robbed, made a prisoner and his staff made slaves, treated badly, escaped and traveled hundreds of miles without any currency or food and had to beg his way across Africa for his survival on his way home. In the process of reading Park's book, I created an interactive Google Map that follows Park's travels that enables you to zoom in on the actual villages and terrain, while reading links for each location described in Mungo Park's book "Travels in the Interior Districts of Africa". Check it out at http://myreadingmapped.blogspot.com/2011/06/interactive-map-of-mungo-parks-african.html
