Sword and Assegai
Author : Anna Howarth
Publisher : Smith, Elder and Co., London
First Published : 1899
Size : 190 x 130 Hard Cover 344 pages

Summary: The novelist and poet Anna Howarth was the daughter of a Church of England clergyman. She was born in London and sent to South Africa on her father's death, where she trained as a nurse at Grahamstown Hospital and lived for some time on a Karoo farm and nursed Selina Kirkman with whom she afterwards lived. The South African colonial settings of her 4 novels gave them topical interest in England during and just after the Boer War.
Although this book was written in quasi-fictional style, it is known to be an accurate chronicle of the experiences of the Kirkman Settler family through the period of the frontier wars.
