The Story of H. M. Stanley
by Vautier Golding
A native Welshman transplanted to America, Stanley (1841-1904) seemed without purpose to his life until his historic meeting with David Livingstone in central Africa. Profoundly touched by Livingstone during their travels together, Stanley resolved to take up Livingstone’s work of exploration after his death in 1873. Relates the story of how Stanley and his crew labor down the great river which turns out to be the Congo, surmounting countless obstacles along the way, including poisoned arrows, cannibals, scanty food supplies, scorpions and boa constrictors, and miles of cataracts.  Ages 8-12

PROEM

TO SWEETHEART JOAN

Smile yet again, my sweetheart Joan,

Ere night and Nursie’s doom

Shall leave these orpan’d eyes alone

To chase the twilight gloom;


Good-night! Another dawn shall speed

That we in ardour blest

May follow brave Uleydi’s lead,

And find the hidden West;


And as, with tender lip and chaste

Beyond this earth’s alloy,

For one brief time you bid me taste

The dear Madonna’s joy,


Lend me your innocence to pray

The thing her babe has told,—

That, though the head be Autumn grey,

The heart be never old.

—Vautier Golding.

Bournville, Sept. 1906
