Riassunto: In March of 1896, the Ndebele people revolted against the authority of the British South Africa Company to initiate what is known as the Second Matabele War, or First Chimurenga, one of many conflicts in the long embattled history of what is now Zimbabwe. Sunshine and Storm in Rhodesia is a riveting and thoughtfully written account of this war by a man who experienced it firsthand - Frederick Courteney Selous. In this book, Selous discusses the factors that led to the war, what life was like in the colony in the 1890's, race relations between the indigenous African population and the predominantly white European settlers, and the dangers and adventures he and other legendary military leaders such as Frederick Russell Burnham, Robert Baden-Powell, and George Grey faced as they led patrols to protect the settlers in the region, rescue the injured, and locate those who had been killed. Included are 17 illustrations, a map, a comprehensive index, lists of the names of those settlers and military personnel murdered, missing, or wounded in the rebellion, and a quantitative list of the homesteads, crops, and animals that were either stolen or destroyed. This Juniper Grove printing is an unabridged photo-reproduction of the original 1896 edition.
