Klappentext

Excerpt from A Picnic Party in Wildest Africa: Being a Sketch of a Winter's Trip to Some of the Unknown Waters of the Upper Nile

Such experiences always leave pleasant memories behind them on the return home. It is then that one is best able to contrast the charm of existence in the wilds with the quiet pleasures of our conventional life at home - the neat little tent in which one passes one's time in the desert, the breeze whispering in the trees above, with the snug warm room at home; the cry of the night-bird, the wail of the hyena, and the splash of the crocodile in the water, for ever reminding us of the charm of nature and its simple pleasures, with the habitual sounds of the streets.

A great part of the descriptions of the scenery and life on the Nile and Sobat rivers, are extracts from the journal of Mrs. Mc Millan, who most kindly put her notes at the disposal of the author. When such extracts are introduced they are placed between inverted commas, and the reader will have no diffi culty in distinguishing them from the rest of the book. Many of the engravings are from drawings taken on the spot by Mr. J essen, the engineer and surveyor to the expedition; and there are reproductions from photographs made by various members of the party. I also am much indebted to Mr. J essen, who has kindly consented to look over the proofs of the book during my absence from England.
