In The Black Nile, investigative journalist Dan Morrison recounts his journey from Lake Victoria to the Mediterranean Sea following the history-laden Nile River on a plank-board boat. Morrison and a childhood friend travel 3,600 miles and six months as they navigate through an area that is no stranger to war, and new discoverers of peace—sometimes terrifying, sometimes humorous, and sometimes truly life-changing. Join me on a trip down the longest river in the world.
