"The author of this interesting novel has certainly not erred on the side of leniency in judging the character of the Boers, but the description of the brutality shown to the natives is probably somewhat exaggerated. The spirit of lawlessness exhibited by the Burghers portrayed in the tale was no doubt characteristic of certain men living at this period in the bush country near the Portuguese territory, and in other remote districts of the Republic."
