Excerpt from Through the Kalahari Desert: A Narrative of a Journey With Gun Camera, and Note-Book to Lake N'gami and Back
A statement, however, of the reasons which prompted me to undertake the journey of which this book is a record, and an introduction to my travelling com panions, are the reader's due; so I shall now proceed to accomplish that task.
A year or so ago I brought under the notice of the public a party of Earthmen from the Kalahari. These people were accompanied by an old half-breed hunter, Kert by name, who, having acquired a smattering of their language, which bears a strong resemblance to that of the Bushmen, acted as interpreter.
