How it works


This is an as-new copy signed by the author on the title page.

De Jongh is a professor of anthropology but this book is written for the layman, telling us in more than a dozen episodes about various "karretjie people" - itinerant families of Griqua descent - moving around on sand roads in small animal-drawn carts earning often perilous livings as sheep-shearers and seasonal farm labourers.

De Jongh's book - photographic limp covers with xi + 221 pp - is profusely illustrated in colour.
