Book post – Born for Adventure by Kathleen Karr

Tom Ormsby loves stories about adventures real and fictional, but his own life is boring and predictable until one day he happens to be in the right place at the right time and wangles his way into one of Henry Morton Stanley’s expeditions to the Congo, but he gets much more than he bargains for as he finds unexpected hardships and cruelties along the way.

Try this if you liked Hatchet by Gary Paulsen, or Sacagawea by Joseph Bruchac.
