Following the highly successful visit by Major Warton's English team in 1888-89, the second cricket team to tour South Africa, in 1891-92, was led by Walter Read. Apart from a post-tour account published in Port Elizabeth in 1892, this is the only full account of the tour.
Based primarily on contemporary newspaper reports, this book recaptures the atmosphere of an important tour on which much interesting and exciting cricket was played.
