A nineteen year old is catapulted out of an 1890s rural lifestyle into the cradle of terrorism, genocide and reprisals, in a strange land. Thanks to some military type training, he is able to survive wounding, capture, escape and emergency surgery and rescue a business while fighting as an irregular to help hasten the end of the Boer war. He encounters the slave trade, mass murder reprisals and terrorism. During this time, he falls in love with a very beautiful girl of mixed race and has the prejudice of a mixed marriage, false accusation and relentless victimization to overcome.
