KIRKUS REVIEW

African adventure -- covering 30 years from the Boer War to the years following the last World War. The author hunts diamonds, gold, rubber, wattles, ivory; he joins the African fight against local Germans, he catches gold thieves, he runs a tin mine and loses his wife and the baby in the flu epidemic. It's a lively, colorful, and definitely not sissy book of white men, natives and odd characters.
