The continent of Africa has for a long time produced its share of bush stories, some carried down generations, others more recent. Readers interested in travelling, travel writing, history and natural history will enjoy this mid-20th century account. In this book, written in 1950, Bulpin writes about the hunters, wildlife, the Bushmen, mosquitoes, and the tsetse fly of the Lowveld. It was an area of extensive wilderness and home to a myriad of the animals, birds, plants and reptiles that have filled the imaginations of hunters, traders and authors alike for many a century in Africa. The characters and legends of the malaria-ridden Lowveld regions of the Transvaal come to life as Bulpin tells more stories about the personalities of the early days in the region.
