The most intrepid traveler since Stanley found Livingstone is on a literary journey so fraught with humor, discovery, and terror that it makes Heart of Darkness read like a drawing-room comedy. This time Redmond O’Hanlon is in the People’s Republic of the Congo, in search of the legendary dinosaur of Lake Télé. But between him and his goal lie miles of swamp-forest, leopards, flesh-eating ants, repulsive diseases, trigger-happy soldiers, and a supernatural entity called the Samalé, which mutilates victims with its three-clawed hands.
“A naturalist willing to go further and suffer more indignities than anyone in the name of a good story.... The details in his new book are riveting.... A wonderful writer.”—Wall Street Journal
