First Edition. Octavo, original blue cloth titled in gold on spine. Very good copy in very good dust jacket, hint of fraying to spine tips, small "Book League of Africa" stamp on front free endpaper. ¶ The book's theme is the impact of white civilisation on a native African. Peter Lanham and A.S. Mopeli-Paulus have recreated the simple and dignified idiom of the tribal story-teller, using it to tell a story described as both a fine piece of writing on a controversial theme and a first-class adventure story.
