One of my favorite, riveting reads by Michener. From the first settlers in South Africa, to the beginnings of aparteid, his insightful look at the peoples and the history amaze me. His discriptions of people and country take you there!
In Michener's style. Obviously well researched and also well written. He follows the history of southern Africa (South Africa mainly) from pre-history to the 1980's. He avoids painting anyone as perfect or without blame and points out along the way where major crossroads were passed which brought South Africa to its present (1980's anyway) situation.
