This, the second book on Pietermaritzburg written by Professor Hattersley, gives a portrait of colonial society more lively than any we have yet had. It is more than a history of the town for, with its fascinating glimpses of settler life, it presents an authentic cross-section of a South African community. Prof. Hattersley has written a book of unusual quality, perhaps his best, certainly his most richly- peopled volume, for it abounds in amusing anecdotes and reflects his deep knowledge of the lives and steadfast spirit of the Natal settlers, patiently adapting themselves to a novel environment.
