“Dan Morrison takes the reader on an incredible journey in The Black Nile. Weaving together intense travel writing and history, he has produced a supremely entertaining work, and also an important one.” –David Grann, author of The Lost City of Z
“Part On the Road, part Fear and Loathing in Africa, Dan Morrison takes us with him on his journey down the Nile — teaching us, by example, to be explorers of both the world and ourselves.” -Kevin Sites, author of In the Hot Zone
“Beautifully written. A masterful narrative of investigative reportage, travel writing, and contemporary history. . . . The Black Nile is all at once thrilling, sad, and—most of all—thoughtful.” —The Daily Beast
The Black Nile, a nonfiction account of my journey down the Nile River from Lake Victoria to the Mediterranean Sea, was released as a Penguin paperback July 26.
