Description Adventures in the Great Forest of Equatorial Africa and the Country de Du Chaillu:

Excerpt from Adventures in the Great Forest of Equatorial Africa and the Country The heroic exploits of Stanley and his followers have aroused a fresh interest in African exploration, and my former works on Equatorial Africa being now out of print, I have been encouraged by my publisher to condense into one popular volume, and to reissue, the narrative of ray journeys. I may claim to be the first white man who penetrated into that vast and unbroken forest which, as I have elsewhere written, extends north and south of the equator, varying in breadth from two to three degrees on each side of it. Now and then, prairies looking like islands, resembling so many gems, are found in the midst of this dark sea of everlasting foliage. In this great woody wilderness man is scattered and divided into numerous tribes. The forest, thinly inhabited by man, is still more scantily inhabited by those species of animals found in great number in almost every other part of Africa. There are neither rhinoceroses, zebras, giraffes, nor ostriches, and few of the many species of the antelope group, including elands and gazelles, are to be seen. Hence large carnivorous animals are scarce- the lion is quite absent, leopards and two or three species of hyenas and jackals only being found. There were no beasts of burden - neither horse, camel, donkey, nor cattle. The only true domesticated animals were goats, sheep, and fowls: I found the goats increasing in number as I advanced into the interior, and the fowls decreasing. On the other hand, this region is peopled by a large number of venomous serpents, by several formidable kinds of ants, and by many strange varieties of apes, headed by the King of the African forest, the Gorilla.
