Description: Jock of the bushveld

The text of Jock of the Bushveld in the series Penguin Modern Classics follows the uncut original edition, together with Percy FitzPatrick's 'Postscript to Jock' of 1909, which was included in his posthumously published South African Memories (from Cassell in 1932), but deleted from subsequent editions. This is followed by his 'The Creed of Jock' of 1920 (not previously published), which serves to complete the entire Jock dossier for the first time. Jock of the Bushveld is a curious, potent mixture of charm and savagery which has survived both to remain readable.
