"Illustrated by Arthur August Jansson, Artist to The Akeley African Hall Expedition for The American Museum of Natural History." This is "...the true story of the high adventure of ten-year-old Mihigo, native Watusi of royal blood, who travelled with me across half the African continent while I was completing the expedition for the Akeley African Hall of the American Museum of Natural History after my husband, Carl Akeley's sudden death in the gorilla volcanoes of the Belgian Congo." The title-page verso has no war-economy logo, but states; "This book is produced in complete conformity with the authorized economy standards."
