A collection of \'Trek-Boer\' stories, about the lives of pioneer folk and their exploits in hunting, trading, nature observation, and general life and relations with the natives, written in English but with many Dutch/Afrikaans words and phrases being used, e.g.\'It gave me a very nasty schrijk at the time,\'(p68),\'Hendrina went straight to the water vatje for which she had done this terrible act\',(p146),\'My man and I were each armed with a good double rifle, and had plenty of ammunition, water-bottles, and some bültong (sun-dried meat), biscuits, coffee, and a kettle\',(p160). Book condition: pictorial boards good though with a heavily worn and discoloured spine, remains of bookseller sticker on lower front, corners bumped, page edges spotted, good end-papers, fore and bottom edges uncut, text very good but with some gatherings loose (cracked). A fairly scarce item giving insights into Boer lifestyles of the period.
