Good red blood and a will- ingness to live hard and perhaps die violently, were required of tho.se who tried to settle in the land of the Kaf- firs. Especially was this true when the settlers tried to push north into the land of the Bushmen, for those small people were powerful and merci- less. And they had much right on their side, for the land had always been theirs, and the Invaders killed them when they could, and stole their wo- men and children. The land was rich, full of gold and Ivory, and It was co- veted by both Boers and English, with constant warfare as a result. Cloete has spent years in Africa, and he knows the land of which he writes so brilliantly. In his books, too, one constantly comes upon bits of homely philosophy. For Instance, two men stand talking, and one points to a bone lying on the ground. \That he says, \Is the leg bone of a buck. The meat has been eaten off It by men. In the night a wolf may come and crack It for the marrow it contains, and the ants will finish the fragments he leaves. In the end all of that bone will go back Into the ground, causing grass to grow. A buck will eat the grass, a man shoot the buck, or It will be killed by a Hon, and then It all begins again. That Is life everlasting.\ Such writing could only come from the pen of one who has lived, and thought, and who has done both things well and thoroughly. Cloete's first book, \Turning Wheels,\ was widely read. His newer one, \Watch For the Dawn,\ will prove equally popular with those who like worth while books .
