"The First World War ended in 1918, returning many able young men to civilian life in England without much hope of jobs. Peacetime commerce and industry had virtually come to a standstill as a result of the War Effort, and jobs were scarce. My father Kit and his elder brother Arthur, fresh out of uniform, found themselves without prospects, as their father had died young and the family business had come to an end. They chanced upon a curious advertisement extolling the virtues of a new Settlement Scheme in faraway South Africa, promoted by an enterprise calling itself the Cape Sundays River Settlement Company. People were looking to the colonies for entrepreneurial opportunities, and the two brothers aged nineteen and twenty-one, announced their intention of taking part in this pioneering venture. ... and so it was that in 1919 the two brothers and their… Read more

"In Early slavery at the Cape of Good Hope Karel Schoeman describes the transplanting of slavery from the Dutch colonies in the East and the first sixty years of its development under local conditions, basing his account mainly on contemporary sources and providing as much information on individual slaves and their lives as these allow. Attention is likewise given to the gradual manumission of slaves and the slow development of a 'free black' community at the Cape towards the close of the seventeenth century." .

"This is intended to be a human story about motorists and the cars they bought, drove, raced, crashed, cursed, scrapped, hated - and loved. Early Motoring in South Africa is a nostalgic and informative look at the first 40 years of the motor-car in Southern Africa - the good years before the servant became the master, but also the years of frustration and disappointment, bad roads, rough terrain and economic depression. Spanning the period 1897 to 1939 there are over 425 photographs, most of which are unique, and an authoritative yet entertaining text." .

Not even modern technological conveniences like super-fast boats, helicopter shuttles, two-way radios, television, or now even cellular telephones, can entirely cancel out the loneliness of the islands." .
