Robert Pickering Ashe (1857-1944) was a pioneer missionary in Uganda; In writing these Chronicles of Uganda he was aware that there were already in existence a good many books dealing with Uganda, and that a considerable literature had gathered about the region of Africa wherein Uganda lies; yet he felt that there was still a distinct need for some book which should represent, as a continuous story, the chief events which led up to Uganda's becoming an English Protectorate; and this need he has endeavoured to supply in this book. 2 pages of publisher's adverts to rear.
