How it works


366 pages, colour frontispiece, sketch maps, plans, numerous illustrations, some insect scarring at the top and bottom edges of the brown simulated cloth boards, a good copy in worn dust jacket.

In his preface, Guy Butler writes: \'This is a book about the origins of English-speaking South Africa. While paying due attention to the First and Second British Occupations of the Cape, and acknowledging the important roles of governors, officials, professional soldiers and missionaries, our concern is less with those who came and went in the course of duty than with those who came to stay; and in particular with the large group of settlers who arrived somewhat dramatically and in unusual circumstances in the Eastern Cape in 1820.\'
