From Keeper to Captain

A novel set in mainly South Africa. A game keeper leaves England for South Africa and a career with the Dragoons during the Caffre (Kaffir) Wars, the Cape Frontier Wars, the Amakosa (Xhosa) Wars.

I own three copies of this book. One has a prize-plate at the front dated December 5, 1888, so even though the title-page is dated 1889, this book was actually published in late 1888.
