  1. c1937 Banned in South Africa at the time of its original publication It was one of the first novels that I read about the Great Trek and I never really tired of them Always a great background for a novel Why should they like you Are you not worse than Zulus who come like a storm, destroy, and then go perhaps never to come again Whereas you come and take their best grazing, kill the game on which they live, and expect them to love you it is in my mind that they think they are a people who have be [...]


  2. It took me a bit to get used to Mr Cleote s writing style, but once I did the story came alive And a great story it is, of the Great Trek of the south African Boers which included some of Cleote s ancestors There are a mix of characters Some, like Sannie and Louisa, I had little sympathy Others truly seemed real, especially Anna de Jong and Rinkals the witch doctor The landscape also becomes as important to the story as the characters, and Cleote describes it well Well worth reading to understan [...]


  3. The dialogue between certain characters and or the portions when certain characters Tante Anna and Rinkals spoke were 100% enjoyment I thoroughly enjoyed those parts of this novel I loved how authentic and real the descriptions were However, certain characters were unbelievable I disliked Sannie greatly I was not rooting for nor did I respect Zwart Piete So, overall, the book was not 4 stars, but the portions I loved were 5 stars I would probably read it again simply enjoy again the parts that a [...]


  4. Depressing as hell But very interesting characters, and while I could have done without the detailed descriptions of blood wounds disease infestations etc, the scenery and characters absolutely jumped off the page into the room A very tragic story, and I thought it was excellently written I ve never read a book about that period of history, and certainly not from the perspective of pioneers Character development, plot development, symbolism, descriptions, everything was excellent it was just a b [...]


  5. A novel about the Great Trek of 1836 The Boers move north into the hostility of the Kaffir Wars to found the Free State and Transvaal Not a modern novel by any accounts but a great read and a depth of knowledge about the panoramas of the land and people living during the time The author builds great characters that give a solid reflection of the time.


  6. Fascinating read considering the book was first published in the 1930 s Anhyone interested in historical fiction this is a facinating insight into the minds of the Voortrekkers and their struggles.
