Not until she was thirty years old did Mary get her chance to explore the world shed read about in her fathers library. In 1893, she arrived in West Africa, where she encountered giant Xying insects, crocodiles, hippos, and brutal heat. Mary endured the hardships of the equatorial countryand thrived.
