An account of the course of the Blue Nile from the Ethiopian Highlands, through the Sudan and Egupt to the sea. The book contains an historical narrative which starts in the eighteenth century and ends in 1869. The period was dominated by four men: James Bruce, the Scot who journeyed to the supposed source of the Blue Nile, and stayed in warring Ethiopia; Napoleon who, needing military glory to further his political ambitions, led a brilliantly conceived expedition to Egypt; Mohammed Ali, the Turkish viceroy, who sent his son to conquer the Sudan in a ruthless quest for gold and slaves; and Emporer Theodore of Ethiopia, a tyrant who held British subjects captive.… (mehr)

Along with "The White Nile," this is a great general introduction to a region and historical period that doesn't get the attention it deserves. ( )

“The Blue Nile” is the subject of a book written by Alan Moorehead in 1962. In fact, the book only briefly explores the river from Lake Tana to Khartoum, and down to the Mediterranean, recollecting the journey of James Bruce, who claimed – wrongly – to be the first European to see the source of the Nile. Most of the book, however, is taken up by narrating the efforts of three colonial powers: the French invading Egypt, the Ottoman Turks in Sudan, and a British expedition in Ethiopia. A really nice, and very readable book, well written, entertaining and informative, and companion to The White Nile (which I hope to acquire, too, once back in The Netherlands) ( )

The exploration of the Blue Nile, the one that runs down from Ethiopia, is the topic of this well-written account of European exploration. from James Bruce to Kitchener at Khartoumn the story is well told.
Read twice. ( )

722. The Blue Nile, by Alan Moorehead (read 28 Jan 1963) I read the The White Nile by this author so I was impressed enough that I read this book also. ( )

This book is infused with the tribal and religious
cultures of the region, cultures which persist to this day. It is very helpful in understanding the nature of the conflicts in which our forces in the region are currently engaged
