By Harry Collingwood Dick Maitland is working as a doctor's apprentice in the East End of London, at that time a place of great poverty. The doctor with whom he is studying is rather a philanthropist for, instead of setting up trade for the wealthy, in Harley Street, he is curing the poor for practically nothing. Dick's family circumstances take a turn for the worse, and he goes down to the docks to work his passage to South Africa. After meeting a tribe whom this author, Collingwood, had written about in a previous book, and sorting out various problems there, they proceed on their way. They had heard rumours of a mysterious white race living not too far away, and they decide to investigate.

Lately I've begun to enjoy just casually letting the stories of swashbucklers and the like sort of chatter away to me as I clean the house. The sound of the Kindle voice is soothing and the stories are fun. Yesterday I was literally stunned into something like a momentary social coma. I just stood there with my mouth agape like some fish out of water wondering...could he really have just said what I think he said??? Here is the quote. If you enjoy this sort of thing, I'm sorry to say that it took me roughly 24% of the story to find that they planned to offend every fiber of my being AND waste my time. If you, like me have any sort of moral code then perhaps I can save you a bit of time. By doing a quick internet search I learned that yes, this book continues down this same bleak and regrettable path.

"What I would advise, " he said, "is that you should look out for a good [insert incredibly inappropriate racial slur here]; he will be far more helpful to you than any white man, and will be content to be a good servant to you-if you are careful to keep him in his proper place-instead of trying to be your master."

Giving a little leeway for the time the book was originally published, (1912, Blackie & Son Limited, London and Glasgow) it would still have been offensive. I'm done with the book so I can't tell you if the story is worth continuing. I can tell you that there are many, many books out there waiting to be released in digital form. This one could have waited. As far as I'm concerned, it could have waited forever.

If you are looking for non-fiction ebooks, then this is not the book for you. It is written about a man who has a catastophic event (quite believable considering current events) affect his widowed mother's estate and he must suddenly fill the void even though he is a doctor in training just out of school.

He is thrust into Africa and the adventure contintues there. If you have enough imagination, then it is somewhat believable.

As for the language, it is written in 1900's english but it is not terribly difficult to understand. As mentioned in another review, the N-word is used only once and not in a derogitory fashion.

This book was free to download, so if you are into adventure, then you only have your time as your cost.
