The Natalians: Further Annals of Natal : First Edition 1940 – Alan F Hattersley

R450.00

“Since economic and social developments were to occupy the foreground, it seemed proper to allow the individual settler to stand forward at the expense of the general. For sources of the personal reminiscence type enable the reader to view colonial history through the eyes of the actors; and these men and women are not proconsuls, generals or prelates but depressed gentry from the motherland, storekeepers, retired seamen, land surveyors and others whose personal story reveals the actual conditions of life in the small colony. The present book makes a modest attempt to estimate in terms of human types the character of the colonial population, and to consider how and from what quarters it has been recruited. For this reason, the main title The Natalians has been selected.”
