Colonel Van Der Post's great travel book is concerned with a people specially near to his heart. From childhood he had been fascinated by the Bushmen - the aboriginal inhabitants of Africa, who even then were rapidly becoming extinct. In 1957 he led an expedition over the Kalahari Desert, in search of some remnants of this unique people, and made a film of it for T.V. His account of this search, which was a spiritual no less than physical exploration, is one of the most enthralling stories ever. Here is a tale of adventure and a book of wonder.(Hardback Out of Print)
