Work on the life and adventures of the well known William Cotton Oswell. A highly important book on the exploration and discoveries of the dark continent. Oswell had a rendezvous with Livingstone and guided Livingstone during much of his travels. Contains hunting for buffalo on the Limpopo River, and elephant near the Zouga River. Also hippo and rhino. But maybe more than anything else this book is much sought after because of the friendship and travels of Oswell and Livingston.
