"Mr. McNish's second book concerning the exciting life of the early diamond diggers, GRAVES AND GUINEAS, covers the period Kimberley 1871-1873 and describes how conditions on the diamond fields started to settle down. In handling the early history of Cecil John Rhodes and other well-known characters of the diamond fields, the author fills even more gaps in the general history of southern Africa." Taken from the book.
