The life story of Percy M Clarke of Victoria falls is in the Rhodesiana reprint series. The people appear in South Africa, Southern Rhodesia and North Western Rhodesia (Victoria Falls / Livingstone and west towards Mongu). North Eastern Rhodesia was a separate region at that time. Much of the action takes place at “The Old Drift”, the original settlement at Livingstone, hence the book title. Clark says that another name for this was “Deadrock” in 1908. I find it curious that after five years there he refers to himself as a Rhodesian, as do other people from his home, Cambridgeshire.
