Biographical Notes

Arthur Berger (1871-1946) studied medicine and qualified as a doctor. He was also a zoologist and explorer who traveled the world before he finally settled in Berlin. In the course of his travels he visited and spent extensive periods in Sudan, East Africa and India. He also spent time in the Arctic and the United States. Berger wrote a number of books on his experiences as an explorer and naturalist, including several for younger readers. His books relating to the Sudan, the Baggara tribe and his journeys along the River Nile, particularly the Blue Nile, are among his better known works.
