A scarce eye-witness account of Sir Garnet Wolseley's abortive 1873-74 campaign against the Ashanti tribe in the West African Gold Coast (today's Ghana). The author came as a volunteer from Canada to lead a liasion mission to the Akim people in resisting the aggressive incursions of the Ashanti. But he and the other Britons with Wolseley found themselves battling endemic disease, a punishing climate and inhospitable terrain as much as the fierce Ashanti warriors. With a map of the region and an appendix of correspondence relating to the author's mission with the Akim.
