African Camp Fires
Stewart Edward White (12 March 1873 – September 18, 1946) was an American author. Born in Grand Rapids, Michigan he attended Grand Rapids High School, and earned degrees from University of Michigan (B.A., 1895; M.A., 1903). From about 1900 until about 1922, he wrote fiction and non-fiction about adventure and travel, with an emphasis on natural history and outdoor living.
White's books were popular at a time when America was losing its vanishing wilderness. He was a keen observer of the beauties of nature and human nature, yet could render them in a plain-spoken style. Based on his own experience, whether writing camping journals or Westerns, he included pithy and fun details about cabin-building, canoeing, logging, gold-hunting, and guns and fishing and hunting.
In this edition White describes his trip to Africa and adventures on safari in Kenya before the First World War.
