Driving South (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


An account of a journey through South Africa from the Limpopo River to Cape Agulhas. The intervening road takes the reader to such diverse places as the Transvaal homelands, the prehistoric sites of Mapungubwe and Makapansgat, Sun City, the diamond fields, the strange enclave of Orania, the Great and Little Karoo and Die Hel. In spite of the diversity of setting, and the even greater diversity of ideology and belief encountered en route, certain recurring themes emerge. Beneath the political turmoil of a country in profound transition (and gripped with drought), there emerges a clear sight of the universal human struggle to survive and find individual significance. The book is filled with characters who offer deep revelations about the process of being swept away by the security of established procedures, environments and cultures, with no framework as supportable replacement. In essence, this book is a celebration of South Africa and the humanity it contains. Other work by the author includes "29th Parallel" which won the CNA Literary Award.
