Gun and Camera in Southern Africa

    Article metrics


    IN this book Mr. Bryden records the incidents which happened in the course of a year of wanderings in Bechuanaland, the Kalahari Desert, and the Lake River Country, Ngamiland. The region is one in which much interest has been taken lately, and colonists and settlers will find in Mr. Bryden's lively pages exactly the sort of information that is likely to be most useful to them. The volume also includes many passages that will be read with pleasure by ethnologists, naturalists, and sportsmen. The illustrations—which are offered as “faithful delineations of places, objects, and people hitherto not often accessible to the camera”—add greatly to the value of the narrative.
