This book tells the dramatic story of the Transvaal from 1884 until
1900 – a period which covers a singularly lurid stretch of South
Africa’s past. In his remarkably engaging style of writing, Bulpin
transports readers back to the rugged Transvaal where gold seemed
to be the centre of all things. It was a time of adventure in which
any man could strike it lucky, or die alone with little else than
disappointment as company. The remarkable story of the
Witwatersrand provides an often hilarious background to a history
of events so important, that they are still of vital interest to
every South African today. All the fantastic intrigue, corruption
and double-crossing which led to the grim climax of the Anglo-Boer
War is described with a wealth of detail and anecdote.
