From the cover: “The road awaits is a tragedy, the story, in the Greek classical tradition, of the life and downfall of a man, and of the working of that ‘divinity which shapes our ends, rough-hew them how we will’. Peter Lanham who in distinguished collaboration with the Basuto Chieftain, A. S. Mopeli-Paulus, wrote Blanket Boy’s Moon, tells here of an Englishman, Richard King, and of his friendship, soon to Turn to enmity and bitter hatred, with Piet Corneels, an Afrikaner of fanatically Nationalist convictions.”
