"The life of the Eastern Frontier in the 19th century was brought alive by the brush of Frederick I'Ons, who lived and worked in Grahamstown from 1834 to 1877." This book is on "his life in South Africa, his paintings of the Xhosa people of the Eastern Cape during the turmoil years of the Frontier Wars, including his controversial 'Stockenstrom Aquila Caricatures'."
