Texte du rabat

A missionary in South Africa in time of war Those who know anything of the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879 are aware that the king of that martial nation was Cetywayo. The Zulu people had been crafted into a formidable military society by Shaka Zulu where all were ordered into regiments. It was trained efficiently and practiced war with ruthless efficiency against both other southern African tribes and European settlers alike. By the time of the conflict which would bring the Zulus to ruin, Cetewayo was but the latest in a line of its warrior kings. The author of this book-which is principally comprised of letters published after her death-lived and worked in Zululand as a missionary during this dramatic period in its history. Annie Wilkinson's letters graphically illustrate the hardships of life on the South African veldt as it was experienced by Europeans during the 19th century and give a different perspective on the coming of war to the border. Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket; our hardbacks are cloth bound and feature gold foil lettering on their spines and fabric head and tail bands.
