About this book

The first people of South Africa, Stone-Age hunters and gatherers from the mountains and the arid flats of the interior, did not survive the arrival of settlers from Europe. Within decades an ancient world of sorcerers, hunters and artists was lost forever, along with the stories they told. Neil Bennun tells the captivating story of Bleek and the Bushmen and explores the wonderfully rich myths of a culture that filled those notebooks in the 1800s.
