Nothing can beat the determination to be your truest self; and that is the Power of One.
This book is set in apartheid South Africa. This book shines a light on racism, on mine workers’ plight and on seeking out the very best of you in a racial pandemic ( like the one we are in right now) from the eyes of a young boy.
You will learn about plants indigenous to Africa, tribal superstition, prejudices, about putting your thoughts before your feelings and investing in yourself. All the while, braving and living through revolutionary times as these.
It is written with a love-filled hand, and Bryce Courtenay delivers his lesson with eloquence and objectivity.
I love timeless novels and this is a classic novel of South Africa.
