HISTORY, FUCK YEAH?
While maintaining a strict adherence to historical accuracy, each book in the HISTORY, F*CK YEAH series reads like a story—complete with splashes of humorous dialogue and modern quips of sarcasm.
THE YEAR WAS 1913 and white people were pretty bored. The United States had settled sea to shining sea, Britain had dipped its dong in pretty much every populated crevice on earth, and Australians were pretty sure you could train a sheep to do just about anything. So, with nothing better to do, they started filling in blank spaces on their maps. Namely the Amazon, central Africa, and the northern and southern ice caps.
Governments and scientific institutions were happy to fund expeditions into the unknown, and explorers were the celebrities of the day. Since the mid-1800s, newspapers had been peppered with their names for weeks or months or years with readers hanging on every word. Where Is Livingstone? headlines blared when the British explorer had gone missing in Africa in 1871. Oh, There He Is, they reported when Henry Morton Stanley found him deep in the interior.
