Madiba Magic – Anonymous

R350.00

From the cradle of mankind comes a kaleidoscope of a book refracting Africa in its myrid facets and hues: the dizzying glare of the hot African sun, the blue haze of the mountains on the horizon, merciful respite offered by water and foliage, the stratagems and wiles of the creatures, both animal and human, who people this harsh continent, and their bounteous humanity, great hearts and ever-ready laughter. Here are to be found tales as old as Africa itself, told around the evening fires since time immemorial, tales from the heritage of the San and the Khoi, original hunter-gatherers and first pastorialists, down to the imaginings of those who came from the sea in great shops with billowing sails.

While some attempt has been made to indicate where each story came from, those who are conversant with the ways of folklore will know that it is impossible to pin point with any degree of accuracy where a story originated. The little red flags on the map (inside of the book) is an attempt to give the reader some idea geographically.
