The Rediscovered Country by Stewart Edward White (1915) is another account of White's African travels. This is widely considered the first definitive account of the Northern Serengeti. "In 1910-11 Mrs. White, R. J. Cuninghame, and myself, with a small safari of forty men, took the usual route via the Kedong valley, Mount Suswa, Agate's Drift to Vandeweyer's boma on the Narossara River. At this point we diverged from the usual route and pushed for some distance south into the Narossara Mountains." Free eBook
Simba by Stewart Edward White (1918) is fiction possibly based on reality. Simba was just an ordinary African boy until he became 'the lion, bravest among his companions'. For all those who are interested in the experiences of great game hunters, the first white man that Simba ever saw and later became his gunbearer, was a character probably based on R J Cuninghame, White's professional guide on his safaris in East Africa.
