King of the Hottentots.


It is generally believed that Van Riebeeck founded the first white settlement at the Cape, but as a result of years of research this well known author has proved an attempt was made in 1614 to settle men, who had been sentenced to hanging in England, who were led by a famous Highwayman of an aristocratic family. Xhore, the Hottentot chief who was lured to England, figures largely in this amazing story. He learned more from the English than they learned from him and on his return to the Cape proved a thorn in the side of those ships which came to obtain water and supplies. So here in unknown history told in a fascinating way.
