This is the last of five joint publications by Jalmar (1917-2003) and Ione Rudner on early Swedish travellers and pioneers in 19th century south-western Africa. The renowned trader and ornithologist, Axel Wilhelm Eriksson, features prominently in each of them. Rosenblad’s narrative of events in the last decade of the century included his participation in the strenuous Hartmann Expedition along the coast, other journeys and adventures, encounters with the indigenous peoples, and internecine strife in the territory at the time of the German occupation.
The book is also available in German under the title Abenteuer in Südwestafrika.
