South African Odyssey: The Autobiography of Bertha Goudvis – Leveson, Marcia (Ed)

R200.00

This is a fascinating first person autobiographical account of one woman’s experiences and life in Southern Africa between the early 1880s and her final years in Johannesburg in the 1960s. Bertha Goudvis enjoyed a long and arduous life (1876 – 1966) during years of turbulent change and several wars. She was a first hand observer of the colonial world and lives on to comment on city life in modern Johannesburg.

This is a particularly important book in giving sketches of Johannesburg in 1893 and in 1911 but there is much more besides.
