Of Bullets and Boys
The story of Mafikeng and its connection with the birth of Scouting, by Jay Heale
THE PLACE OF STONES is famous for the siege in which Robert Baden-Powell defended the town of Mafeking (as the British spelt the name) in 1899-1900. Here, in outline, is the story of this town from its first beginnings, of its place in local African history, of Sol T. Plaatje, and of the idea which led to the worldwide Scouting Movement.
