The Boer War compelled Chris King to flee with his mother from Johannesburg to the sea coast. They were with other Uitlanders, all of whom suffered much under the Boers. Reaching a place of safety for their families, Chris and twenty of his friends formed an independent company of scouts. In this service they were with Gen. Yule at Glencoe, then in Ladysmith, then with Buller. They were in the great battles and in the lonely fights on the Veldt; were taken prisoners and escaped; and rendered valuable service to the English forces. A fascinating picture of the war in South Africa. 402 pages, softcover.
