Scouting on Two Continents


Few autobiographies tell so gripping a story as Frederick Russell Burnham’s “Scouting on Two Continents”. The author was an American who, after spending his early years in the tough pioneering communities of the West, heard and obeyed the call of Africa. He had a fluent pen, a flair for the sensational and the ability to involve himself, directly and intimately, in dramatic events. He writes racily of his youth and early manhood in the American outdoors, and therefore devotes most of the book to his experiences as a scout, in the Matabele War of 1893, the Matabele rebellion of 1896, and in the Anglo-Boer War.
