Knit something special for your inner flapper!

American photojournalist turned explorer Jade del Cameron is the creation of writer Suzanne Arruda. A female Indiana Jones, Jade is known as much for her fierce spirit, outspoken nature, and sharp intellect as for her exotic beauty. A crack shot with her Winchester rifle, following WWI she heads to colonial-era Africa as a reporter for an American travel magazine. Still struggling to overcome the horrors she witnessed as an ambulance driver at the front in wartime France, she’s a compelling guide to the majesty and mystery of Africa in the 1920s.

Her neat cap, with its streamlined, no-nonsense shape and button trim, is designed to keep even her unruly curls in place when speeding across the African plains in her open Model T.
