Jephson. Stories Told in an African Forest

Today's free book is Stories Told in an African Forest by A. J. Mounteney Jephson. For the table of contents, check at the bottom of this post below the image. As the author explains in the preface, these are caravan stories from Zanzibar in east Africa. Jephson was one of the officers who accompanied Henry Stanley to what was then called Equatoria (now the southern Sudan); you can read more about Zanzibar at Wikipedia.

The book is available at Internet Archive, Hathi Trust, and Google Books.
