KIRKUS REVIEW

An explorer who has dug up bones, taken pictures and brought back narrative material from the Veld, here describes a new world for mature younger readers. Rhodesia supplies his principle source, and with its surrounding areas is described with many details of a little known ancient culture and a mysterious wild land of primitive tribal ways with sophistications and a history unlike any we know. Strange extinct animals, poisonous snakes, sterile caves and a whole mysterious terrain and a totally foreign people combine to make this an exceptionally lively addition to Scribner's excellent series of books on other lands, other peoples.
