Excerpt from Wild Life in Central Africa
This book is a simple account of the ripe experience of ten years spent in Central Africa, which is the tract of country known as Nyasaland and north-eastern Rhodesia. The former protectorate used to be known as British Central Africa, and the latter territory is now amalgamated iwith north-western Rhodesia, known collectively as Northern Rhodesia, to distinguish it from Southern Rhodesia, which embraces the old-time territories of Matabeleland and Mashonaland.
For the last ten years I have spent a wandering sort of life in Nyasaland and north-eastern Rhodesia, so, to get a short and descriptive title, I use the title Wild Life in Central Africa.
I am afraid this is rather a disjointed kind of volume, digressions are frequent, and possibly there is a certain amount of repetition. For this I can only plead that I have suffered much from malarial fever, both in India and Central Africa, and my memory is such that I sometimes forget what I have written soon afterwards.
