By Sheer Pluck

Another story written from some of the personal experience of Henty. A naturalist and his companion, Frank Hargate, search for new flora and fauna in the deadly jungles and terrain of "Gold Coast" of Africa. The Naturalist dies, and Frank manages to escape from a tribe wanting to offer him as a human sacrifice. He follows General Wolseley and his British expedition as it marches inland from the African coast to capture the trouble-making tribe of Ashantes and their town, Coomassie.
