Eternal Chrysostom LLC, 28 lug 2020 - 510 pagine

Published in 1886, the original copy of this antiquarian gem is coveted by collectors everywhere.

The author is almost more fascinating than the accounts of his adventures traveling through the Kalahari. Born in Ontario as William Leonard Hunt, he went on to lead the famous circus troupe "The Flying Farinis", the inventor behind folding theater seats and the modern parachute, and the creator of the first human cannonball act.

The book itself consists of Farini's thoughts and observations in the Kalahari as a botanist and a scientist, as well as his descriptions of the fascinating people and events that befell him during his travels.
