About this book

Selected letters and memoirs of John Smith, a young vet in a tiny, close-knit colonial society, explaining the emotional pressuresof trekking for weeks on end, alone with several scores of carriers, through bush and veldt. His close-quarter observation of Africans, early this century, is an important balancing contribution to our understanding of colonial history.
