Venture to South Africa illustration
An illustration from Chapter 11 of Venture to South Africa, At Loch Vaal. The Eliots spend the January holidays at Uncle Alec's cottage near the lake. Joseph, the native boy gardener displays the snake he has killed, which is a great thrill to the Eliot children, although snakes on the loose is something that Mrs. Eliot is not too happy about.
