JOCK OF THE BUSHVELD
Sir Percy FitzPatrick
The much loved book for the whole of Southern Africa. Read by children and adults across the decades. A story of African itself.
'It must be all true! And don't leave out anything!'
It was to meet this demand of a youthful but exacting audience that the author first told the story of Jock's life in the hunter's paradise of the African bush.
Jock is a bull-terrier. When he is born, he is the ugliest of a litter of six; but he grows up to be the wisest and bravest of them all. With his master, he shares the excitement of camp life in the early days of the gold rush, and of many thrilling encounters with big game. Lost in the veld during one of their long expeditions, he learns as much as a dog can about its birds and beasts and men.
His tale has become a classic among animal stories. Today it is as fresh and exciting as when it was first told.
It is published here with the many marginal and full-page illustrations which have been an integral part of Jock's legend since the book was first published.
