Post Reid, Mayne: The Bush Boys v1 31 jan 2009

This is not quite your usual style of book by Mayne Reid. We are used to books about the Mexican War, and similar topics, books where there are plenty of words and expressions in Mexican-Spanish. In this book there are equally plenty of words and expressions in Africaans, the variety of Dutch spoken originally by the Boers (Boors in this book), the Dutch farmers.

The book is a very good introduction to the animals, both mammals and birds, of South Africa. The snakes get a mention, too. Several very tense moments are built up, and you will be wondering right up to the very last moment how whoever is involved in the story, is going to get out of the situation. Recommended as perhaps one of the best books by this prolific author.

Nice cover from an original illustration by ravenne, some in-text illustrations.
