Rhodesiana Reprint Library: Volume 10 Eleven Years in Central South Africa by Thomas Morgan Thomas tells the story of the missionary party that became the first permanent white settlers in Matabeleland, and includes detailed notes on the fauna and flora encountered on their long trek.
Book in very good condition. Dust jacket has a slight tear and a sticker on the spine.
An important surviving source for the study of the spectacular and short-lived kingdom of Ndebele. In the literature of pre-conquest Rhodesia, Thomas' book stands out by virtue of its ethnographical and political material about the Ndebele under Mzilikazi and Lebengula and its description of the momentous encounter between the Christian mission activities and African societies in the pre-colonial era.
