Description: Rehoboth, Namibia. Past & Present

Rehoboth, Namibia: Over 130 years ago a group of people known as the Basters migrated from De Tuin in the Northern Cape to settle here peacefully. Various aspects of this community and how it has retained its identity and common purpose are described in this well researched book. The book comprises 15 articles which paint a picture of life in a unique region that has one of the most scenic landscapes in Namibia. The land issue is the underlying, critical factor in all the articles.
