This anthology of short stories, edited and introduced by David Adey, provides a wide-ranging introduction to (or opportunity to renew acquaintanceship with) an art in which many southern African authors have achieved greatness. The stories mirror the evolution of a nation, from the hardships and adventures of frontier and tribal life to the world of township and city. A large number of authors have been selected, with the aim of producing a collection as representative as possible of all the characteristics, qualities and diversities of mood that co-exist in the genre.
