For six months botanist Mary Agard Pocock travelled with ethnologist Dorothea Bleek as her aide-de-camp. The purpose of the trip was to collect information on the remaining Bushmen of the region. Pocock also studied the flora of the region and collected almost 1000 plant specimens. Her record of the journey is illustrated with her photographs, sketches and paintings of the people and plants of southern Angola.
