Little is known of Sandton's history and few people are aware that voortrekker settlers lived in the area in the first half of the nineteenth century. While Johannesburg was growing into a big mining town, a few isolated farmers, about ten kilometres to the north, formed the beginnings of a community. The author, Juliet Marais Louw, who lived in the area, describes the quaint and often… Read more

(Johannesburg: Jonathan Ball, 2005) 1868422259. 221 x 153 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. (vi) + 350. Lamination lifting very slightly from corner of upper cover; penned annotation to final page of Glossary. Very good condition. "Waiting for the Moon is a riveting story that spans the generations and the years between the 1890s and the 1950s, moving swiftly across the landscape of southern Africa. It is a novel of displacement, exile and the search for identity wherein Keegan masterfully prises open and explores the inner demons of South Africa's divided and conflicted past. It is a story of lost dreams and sad endings, of endurance and survival, yet it is told with verve, compassion and humour. ... Tim Keegan has achieved an extraordinary feat in combining the genre of the novel with sharp historical insights and attention to detail. ... Waiting for the Moon, in its richness and authenticity of detail, is a feat of the literary and the historical imagination ..." .

Very good. 'The New York Times says, "Christopher Hunt makes a lively travel companion." This time he sets his sights on Cuba, where crumbling but elegant facades overlook shady street activities, where vintage Ford Fairlanes rumble past Soviet Ladas in the fast lanes of eerily deserted boulevards, and where an aging Fidel Castro is struggling to maintain his grip on a population yearning for aire libre, or at least Air Jordans. When an inquisitive and mischievous American lands in Cuba and begins asking, "Where's Fidel?" the answers take him from Havana's squalid alleys to its steamy nightclubs from Cuba's endless expanses of sugar cane to the craggy peaks that once sheltered the bearded dictator.' .

Dustwrapper very slightly sunned on spine panel; regular, light browning; top edge a little foxed; occasional spotting. Very good condition. "The result is a book brimming with ideas, insights, people and events; at once thoughtful and exciting, mellow yet full of promise, autobiographical but also topical. For all the apparent diversity of its elements - world leaders, writers, tribespeople, politicians, intriguing stories of human and animal life - they are held together by Laurens van der Post's distinctive and cohesive vision. All form part of a whole, a positive, healing, unifying outlook which is sustained by a strong set of values forged from a lifetime of intense experience and challenge. For those who have never ventured with Laurens van der Post before, A Walk with a White Bushman offers a tempting preamble to many longer… Read more

'This is a family story set round a house, steeped in tradition, which stands just outside Cape Town. The time is the early nineteenth century and the heroine is Alison Vernon. She is a strong, but tolerant, character and it is her love for her husband and her acceptance of his infidelities that makes the main thread of the book. Through this family story, the story of tghe Dutch and English settlers in South Africa is told-not dramatically, but simply, as the lives of the people connected with this family are affected by their difficulties.' .

Trace of foxing to edges. Near-fine condition. "The War Reporter is an imaginary newspaper. There was no single Republican or Boer newspaper that was published on either a daily, weekly or monthly basis for the whole duration of the Anglo-Boer War. The 'editor', 'reporters' and 'correspondents' of The War Reporter never actually existed. The aim was to publish an account of the course of the war in its totality - meaning not merely the military confrontations. The format represents the way in which the war could have been reported in a pro-Boer weekly newspaper (monthly from September 1900), published in the South African Republic as the war progressed. One of the most formidable challenges that face historians is to understand the zeitgeist or atmosphere of the period they write about. The… Read more

This is, however, far more than just an account of men in battle. Woven through are details of the political background to the conflict and the diplomatic initiatives which governed the lives and deaths of young Cuban, South… Read more
