Keep Off This Grass
KEEP OFF THIS GRASS by Harry Norton.
A foreign conspiracy develop plans to take over a large ranch in Africa, not because they want cattle but they have found something valuable below ground level. This novel written about 50 years ago deals with a veldt fire, cattle rustling, a stampede and threats to the rancher’s family, probably in the 1930s. Even with help from the local authorities and the police there is a sudden and unexpected twist in the tale.
