Jock of the Bushveld, Paperback

Jock of the Bushveld Paperback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series



'Hunting stories, like traveller's tales, are proverbially dangerous to reputations, however literally true they may be ...' So wrote J Percy FitzPatrick of his perennial best-seller, never out of print in the century since its first publication.

Here is the story of the 'Boy' who went to seek his fortune and of his bull-terrier, the plucky runt of the litter; of Marokela, the champion Zulu haulier; of Jantje, the Bushman with all his lore; and of pioneer types from previous goldrushes in California and Australia.

A tribute to the life of the 1880s in the outposts of the agrarian Transvaal, this complete edition includes for the first time the author's "Postscript" and "The Creed of Jock".
