This book is part travelogue, part history lesson, telling the story of Lord Strathcona's formation of a mounted unit in Canada for service in the Boer war.
The author and his son set off to make a documentary about their exploits, taking them from Canada to London and on to South Africa. Born in South Africa the author describes and visits the battlefields and military cemeteries and meets many characters of modern South Africa and it doesn't provide a happy picture.Complemented with photographs and also visits Kruger National Park and the battlefields of the Zulu wars (Isandlwana and Rorkes Drift) this book makes and interesting read for those who enjoy military history together with a travel around modern South Africa.

HASH(0x8ecbb5f4) out of 5 stars A Fascinating Look Into Canada's Past! 3 April 2016
By Believer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
In "Searching for the Queen's Cowboys" Tony Maxwell takes the reader on a journey as he and his son travel across South Africa documenting the role of Strathcona's Horse, a Canadian Regiment in the " first large- scale modern war between an advanced military power and a small backward nation of people of European descent." Intermingled with details of their journey and descriptions of major battles are Tony Maxwell's personal experiences growing up in South Africa.

Fascinating and often filled with humor, "Searching for the Queen's Cowboys" gives a unique insight not only into the exploits of the Canadian squadron but into the modern-day problems of South Africa, a country still impacted by its violent and turbulent past.

I found this a very disappointing piece of work and possibly one of the dullest works about Africa
