An exhilarating and terrifying account of the historic first source-to-sea descent of the Congo At 2,922 miles, the Congo is the eighth longest river and the deepest in the world, with a flow rate second only to the Amazon. Ex-Marine Phil Harwood embarked on an epic solo journey from the river's true source in the highlands of Zambia through war-torn Central Africa. With no outside help whatsoever he faced swamps, waterfalls, man-eating crocodiles, hippos, aggressive snakes, and spider webs the size of houses. He collapsed from malaria, and was arrested, intimidated, and chased. On one stretch, known as "The Abattoir" for its history of cannibalism and reputation for criminal activity, the four brothers he hired as bodyguards were asked by locals, "Why haven't you cut his throat yet?" But he also received tremendous hospitality from proud and brave people long forgotten by the Western world, especially friendly riverside fishermen who helped wherever they could.
