Description

Sir Winston Churchill's illustrious father roughs it in the veld, writes about gold fields and wagon-trekking, and presents an illuminating picture of Cecil Rhodes's Rhodesia. Lord Randolph Churchill had a brilliant and meteoric political career. Born in 1849, the third son of the seventh Duke of Marlborough, he entered Parliament at the age of 26, became Secretary for India at 36 and Chancellor of the Exchequer a year later. On his political downfall soon afterwards his interests turned to travel.

As a shareholder in the British South Africa Company he decided, in 1891, to visit southern Africa to discover for himself whether Rhodes's domain would, as men predicted, become the new El Dorado. The Daily Graphic paid him UK Pound 100 apiece for a series of letters on his travels and these were subsequently republished as the basis of this book. Churchill wrote in detail of what he saw en route through the Cape Colony, the Transvaal, Bechuanaland and Mashonaland.

Accompanied by a large entourage, including an eminent American mining engineer, he spent several months in Mashonaland, and he has given posterity a highly informative chronicle embellished with delightful illustrations and a frank (and at the time unpopular) assessment of Cecil Rhodes's most ambitious colonial venture.
