“The fact that no one had done it before only seemed to encourage him.” So journalist Henry Morgan Stanley wrote of Dr. David Livingstone, the reserved, unflappable Scot who set out in 1854 from the Angolan coast to cross the heart of the African continent. Hundreds of Europeans had perished in the attempt. David had a simple theory about why: “They failed to travel light.”
