'There is no part of the world with a richer mythology than Southern Africa. ... Stone-age Bushmen, copper-age Hottentots, iron-age Karanga, Sotho-Tswana, Nguni, Herero and Ovambo; yellow people, brown, chocolate, burnt umber, black, white; people from Africa, Asia and Europe - Melanesia, Indonesia, Arabia, India, Holland, Germany, France and Britain - all have contributed unique fantasies, dream people and monstrous creatures to the strange assembly of African ghosts.'
