Among the Matabele.


This little book is 114 years old,amazing,and still in a reasonable state.Set out in 10 chapters,it is the story of the experiences of the Rev.D. Carnegie,who went out to Hope Fountain in Matabeleland in 1882,and spent the next 10 years at that station of the London Missionary Society.Those 10 years living amongst the Matebele people earned him the friendship and trust of the King,and he became an authority on Matabele customs,modes of thought and way of life.The 10 chapters in this little book are all the results of first-hand and thoroughly competent knowledge.
