"The Sherbro was one of the great revenue-producing regions
of Britain's Sierra Leone colony. It was the port of entry for
ocean-going steamers and the point of departure for the products
of the rich hinterland including palm oil, koala nuts, rubber, and
various fruits and cultivated crops. The author, who was
Commissioner at Sherbro, discusses these indigenous products as
well as secret societies, ordeals and punishments, various chiefs
and treaties, and the Mendi rising of 1898."
