Description


AFRICAN ODYSSEY

Joseph Crad

The author writes:

I hope that one day a far abler pen than mine will write of the early days in Matabeleland and the work of the Matabele Pioneer Force; writer of the calibre of Bret Harte or Rolf Bolderwood. This book has not been illustrated for a reason which I hope will appeal to all who read it. We simply did not carry cameras in those days. and though there were men with the column who would have tackled anything. I cannot imagine one having enough nerve to photograph a charging impi or trying to take a snap of King Lobengula. The average school boy can tell you the names of a dozen western heroes and bad-men but few know of Major Wilson. Forbes. Burrows. Burnham. Gifford. Selous, Colenbrander and such men.

Books and films on the Wild and Woolly West are in their hundreds, but few are written about our African Empire and the men who founded it. And so a man to whom a stock-whip. rifle and pick comes more natural than a pen, has tried to tell of those far off days, and craves the readers indulgence for his lack of technique and writing polish.

Thank you.

A note on our DVD products: Our DVD's are taken from original 16mm and 8mm films or VHS tapes.

Our DVD's are on DVD-R media, please make sure that your player is compatible with this format. Thank you.
