The Great Trek.


“If ever that overworked word ‘epic’ deserved to be used it is here.The little parties of bearded men who trekked north with their wives and children and cattle are described with critical sympathy.They took to their waggons and faced the perils and the hardships of the then scarcely known High Veld.There and over the mountains to the east were two of the bravest purely barbarian armies known to history.It is a great episode deserving,as told in this book,a wide circle of readers”.
