  • It was the perfect book to read before my trip to Aug 20, 2016
    by TexaxBookMaven

    to Southern Africa. It held my attention and I learned a lot about Africa and what to look for during my visit.

  • An excellent read Jul 12, 2012
    by Andy

    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!

    Many aspects of this incredible read remind me of America's history. One of Michener's best works, and I'm now half way through "Poland" which is also a winner thus far.

  • A Good Michener Tome Mar 27, 2008
    by DRay

    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.
