My Early Life, also known in the USA as A Roving Commission: My Early Life, is a 1930 book by Winston Churchill. A significant portion of the book covers his experiences in the Second Boer War of 1899-1902, which he had earlier described in London to Ladysmith via Pretoria (1900) and Ian Hamilton's March (1900).
Botha turned Churchill over to a Boer prison, from which Winston soon escaped. The escape tale involves a coal mine labyrinth, a lot of worrying and waiting, and some freight trains, one carrying coal sacks, and another great bales of wool. From today's viewpoint Winston was clearly a shameless imperialist and racist, pretty normal for the British of the time.

How I hated this school, and what a life of anxiety I lived there for more than two years. I made very little progress at my lessons, and none at all at games. I counted the days and the hours to the end of every term, when I should return home from this hateful servitude and range my soldiers in line of battle on the nursery floor. The greatest pleasure I had in those days was reading. When I was nine and a half my father gave me Treasure Island, and I remember the delight with which I devoured it.
