Translated and annotated by Ione and Jalmar Rudner. 216 pages, folding map at rear.

Originally published in Swedish in 1899, this book by the traveller and explorer, Peter August Moller, describes his journey by ox-wagon in Angola, through Ovamboland and Damaraland to Walvis Bay. The Rudners' notes augment a wealth of first-hand information about this part of the country as it was at the end of the 19th century. Particularly interesting are the passages devoted to the native people, the Angola Trekkers and to wild-life.  Also of interest is Moller's account of the death of Charles John Andersson, the famous naturalist and explorer, as related to him in Angola by the pioneer and hunter, Axel Eriksson. The description of hunts and his photographs of of native life are of special interest.
