Reprint of the allegorical novella by Olive Schreiner about one of Cecil John Rhodes' young troopers lost in Mashonaland and the appearance of a Christ-like figure on a hilltop. The pursuit of small gold mines by Rhodes' British South Africa Company led to a violent expropriation of Mashonaland and Matabeleland.

Includes a new introduction by Matthew Blackman.
