I'll have to pick this up. On a similar vein, I recommend the memoir Commando by Deneys Reitz.

About Howard C. Hillegas

Howard Clemens Hillegas was born in 1872 in Pennsylvania, and began his career as a journalist after graduating from college, eventually working as a war correspondent for the New York World. In 1895, Hillegas was sent to South Africa and developed close ties to Boer statesmen and military leaders. He wrote extensively about them and his experiences during the war, though this collection of articles was suppressed by the British on its publication in 1901.
