Later made by John Huston into a film starring Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn, it describes the unlikely romance between Rosa Sayer, an English missionary, and Mr. Allnut, the skipper of a dilapidated steam launch on the Uganda River during the First World War. Sayer and Allnut journey downriver through enemy waters to blow up a German warship and fall in love in the midst of their hardships and dangers. The novel is, among other things, a spoof of traditional adventure stories.Hide synopsis
