"Bvekenya,--S.C. Barnard to give him his real name is almost a legend in the wilderness and on the great Limpopo River. Here he relives the strange adventures of ivory poaching, black-birding and outlawry, which made him one of the most colourful of all African personalities. We read of the hunts, fights, escapades and adventures of the wilds who defied the police of three countries and fought a one-man war with complete success against all control and authority."-dj.
