Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Reality Versus Romance in South Central Africa: Being an Account of a Journey Across the Continent From Benguella on the West, Through Bihe, Ganguella, Barotse, the Kalihari Desert, Mashonaland, Manica, Gorongoza, Nyasa, the Shire Highlands, to the Mouth of the Zambesi on the East Coast

Inspired in the inception of his undertaking by a belief that black men from Jamaica, by reason of their more ready adaptability to climatic conditions and sup posable racial sympathy, could be advantageously em ployed for the Christianization and civilization of the African savage tribes, he took the only practical means for conclusively determining the probable practicability of the design, by thoroughly informing himself upon the conditions under which they would have to live and labor. This he could only do by personal experience, for the assumedly authoritative reports of precedent travelers were much too contradictory of one another upon important matters, too meager in essential details, and too restricted in their field of exploration, to be ac cepted as information.

In pursuance of his purpose he not only made a care ful study of the native tribes in the vast belt selected by him for exploration, but critically investigated the resources of the country, its availability for develop ment, and the obstacles - where any existed - in the way of its reclamation from savagery.
