Jock of the Bushveld, Paperback Book



'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".
