Jock of the Bushveld Paperback / softback
Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series
`Hunting stories, like traveller's tales, are proverbially dangerous to reputations, however literally true they may be . . .' So wrote J Percy FitzPatrick of his perennial best-seller, never out of print in the century since its first publication.
Here is the story of the `Boy' who went to seek his fortune and of his bull-terrier, the plucky runt of the litter; of Marokela, the champion Zulu haulier; of Jantje, the Bushman with all his lore; and of pioneer types from previous goldrushes in California and Australia.
A tribute to the life of the 1880s in the outposts of the agrarian Transvaal, this complete edition includes for the first time the author's `Postscript' and `The Creed of Jock'.
