Original green cloth on boards. Surface damage to lower front joint. Previous owner's name. Two line drawings in the text suggest that there might have been a frontispiece. Seventeen-year-old Bob is despondent about not being able to afford a new gun to take on a local hunting trip. Then his cousin discloses that his father might take them on a trip to Africa. This story is only one of dozens put forth by this author who lived from 1848-1912. Remembering his Toby Tyler as one of my childhood favorites, I was taken aback by my aversion to the clumsy, drawn-out syntax of Captured by Zulus. The author is credited with many early adventure stories. It is even suggested that this book might have inspired Edgar Rice Burroughs to write the Tarzan books. 282 pp.
