The Riddle of the Veld.


This little book published as far as I can make out during the war year of1941,is basically a collection of lifes sketches,character and history in the backveld of South Africa,these rough sketches are offered as raw material on wich the eventual owners of South Africa may draw when writing its history,and dedicated to the nameles and forgotten men and women who have toiled,consciously or unconsciously,to make history in the veld. An interesting little volume.
