Adventures was the wrong word to put in the title of this book. As presented he wasn't much of a swashbuckling figure though he did appear to be something of a sportsman. His trips to Africa and the Arctic are given short shrift. When he was in the Boer War, he was a visiting physician and sometime correspondent for the papers back in Britain.
Wasn't what I was expecting from the book.
And discovering that Arthur Conan Doyle was embarrassed by Sherlock was a "letting the air out of the balloon" moment for me.
