Imperial Vanities: The Adventures of the Baker Brothers and Gordon of Khartoum

by

This is the entwined story of three Victorians. Two of these men were brothers - Sir Samuel Baker, the irrepressible explorer; and Valentine Baker, reckoned to be the leading cavalry officer of the British Army before disgrace overwhelmed him. The third is the troubled Charles Chinese Gordon, murdered by the Mahdi's forces in Khartoum. Imperial Vanities is an adventure story in the high tradition, ranging from the Upper Nile, to Ceylon, Egypt and the slave markets of the Balkans. Hide synopsis
