So with this in mind, the synopsis from the Back Cover:

The Pioneer Library

A Standard Series by Sir Harry Johnston, the famous Explorer.

"A first rate example of the healthy and growing tendency of the present day to combine accurate realism with adventure. The author's object is to illustrate the irruption of the white races upon black, yellow and brown men, by throwing together selected records of those exploits which, as he justly says, are more exciting than anthing in Marryat or Stevenson, and incidentally to instruct by giving accurate details not only about savages themselves, but about animals, plants, and the lie of the land."
- Manchester Guardian
