The book captures the wild and pagan beauty of the African landscape. Hyatt wrote the book as an exercise in self-examination. The work chronicles the early days of the exploration of Africa. There is a mystery that is unraveled with each turn of the page.
The risk of accident was considerable. A gun might go off by mistake, a wounded buck might charge, the cattle might trample you, or a fall on one of the smooth boulders might result in a fractured thigh, yet we were never less than eighty miles from a doctor, and often over two hundred miles away from one. The fever and the complaints resulting from it were, however, our worst enemies.
