Seven Tales of South-West Africa
First published in 1915, these seven stories exemplify the beautiful, but arid and treacherous area that forms part of the Kalahari Desert in South Africa and Namibia (then South-West Africa).
And Other East African Adventures
In 1898, the British East Africa Company commissioned Col. John H. Patterson to oversee the construction of a railway bridge over the Tsavo River in present-day Kenya. Almost immediately after his arrival, lion attacks started to take place on the workers, with the lions dragging men out of their tents at night and feeding on their victims.
