How it works


xvi, 734 pages: illustrations. (Africana Reprint Library; volume 3). Skivertex with gilding, dust wrapper. Originally published in 1876.

A wide-ranging manual of instruction on the art of surviving in and enjoying the great outdoors in the nineteenth century. "An encyclopedia of practical living for the aspirant explorer of a hundred years ago." Front endflap. Baines' reputation as one of the most respected 19th-century travellers in southern Africa guarantees this work its status! This was a manual for how to survive when things got tough: how to live off the land, fish without equipment, cross rivers, shoot and overcome obstacles. "…we get an excellent insight into the character of Thomas Baines: his boundless curiosity, his zest for living; his enjoyment of the unusual; his philosophic outlook." F.R Bradlow, foreword, page xiv.
