Sir Samuel White Baker is one of those larger-than-life heroes only the Victorians could invent. For too long, the British Empire has been denigrated and equated with arrogance at best and racial bigotry at worst. Samuel Baker transcends that. He was an explorer and naturalist, recording new species on his many travels; a big game hunter with huge expertise across continents; an engineer of skill and ingenuity; a general of ability; an administrator second to none; and an ardent opponent of African slavery. M. J. Trow, in this the first biography of Baker for twenty years, draws heavily on Baker s prolific writings to bring the extraordinary character of this Victorian adventurer and his achievements to life.

This tribute to Sir Samuel White Baker is a great read due to the amount of detail about the man included in the book. The vivid details included in the book really highlights the writers feelings on the man M.J.Trow is writing about is writing about. This interesting book goes through the many adventures of Sir Samuel White Baker during his life that will intrigue the reader by showing his different exploits. This book gives an insight into Baker's creative writings which. M.J.Trow's amazing writing shows that any prior hesitations on the character of Sir Samuel White Baker and other men like him are no longer required due to the fact that the Post-Emipire Historians were wrong and that we shouldn't be ashamed of men like him. This book makes you want to be re-educated about Sir Samuel White Baker because it will intrigue you and make you glad that you have read the book. I personal enjoyed this book because of its eye opening information throughout the book about the life of Sir Samuel White Baker.
