Description

Herman Charles Bosman, was one of South Africa’s best-loved and most popular writers. Bosman’s stories have become well-loved. This collection contains many favourite stories of the wars and loves, prejudices and insights of a backveld Afrikaner community. It will appeal, both for the enjoyment of loyal readers as well as for a young generation not yet acquainted with his genius. In 1926 Herman Charles Bosman was appointed to a teaching position in the Groot Marico district of the then Western Transvaal. The place and the people enthralled him, and provided him with the background for his best-known works. ‘There is no other place I know that is so heavy with atmosphere, so strangely and darkly impregnated with that stuff of life that bears the authentic stamp of South Africa,’ he wrote in “Marico Revisited”.
