Hunting and adventures by a noted explorer and writer in the wilds of Namibia, up to his untimely death. From Mendelssohn (Sidney) South African Bibliography volume 1, pages 42 – 43: "This is the last record of the adventures of the author, the narrative being continued up to the time of his death on the banks of the Cunene River. The volume contains a description of a battle between the Namaquas and Damaras, the latter having been led by the author, who was severely wounded in the contest. Other chapters give information about the Ovambo and there are interesting notes about the game birds of the country and the river Cunene."
