This is really a great book, with incredible descriptions and interesting stories. I would give it five, but, it's kind of racist, you know, because it was written over 100 years ago. But if you don't mind that, it's a great read, especially if you're interested in history or exotic locations.

When I started to read this book I did not expect to learn as much as I did about the world. Like where the term 'Thug' originated or a small lite stick like thing called a weet weet that the aboriginals of Australia could throw over 100 yards. This book is a great read.
