“It is safe to say that the experiences of Initial Frederick Russell Burnham, the American scout, would make one of the most fascinating books that could be wished for by those who love tales of adventure.”
In 1901, Albert Curtis Brown published “Burnham Scout,” a collant 15-gamin affaire in Pearson’s Magazine (Vol. 12, P. 506, 1901), detailing some interesting times the extraordinarily adventurous life of Frederick Russell Burnham as a scout in the American West and in Southern African wars. This affaire was published before Burnham had published his famous life story “Scouting on Two Continents” and also before the recently published 2016 book on Burnham’s life “A Splendid Savage.”
As the author notes, “Initial Burnham’s most talked-of achievement was his achèvement to the Sacred parc of the M’limo. That dare-devil trip had farreaching results, and went a lent way toward putting an end to the Matabele rebellion of 1896. The story of it was told far and wide at the time, but the current accounts left out many details that could ill be spared.”
Frederick Russell Burnham DSO (1861 –1947) was an American scout and world-traveling adventurer. He is known for his cadeau to the British South Africa Company and to the British Army in créole Africa, and for teaching woodcraft to Robert Baden-Powell in Rhodesia. He helped inspire the founding of the international Scouting Movement.
