On The High Flats Of Natal


Line drawings and photographs in text; 8 colour plates; map. Lovely dedication to me signed by the author on the front free end paper.

The reasons for writing this book: it covers a part of Natal which has been neglected regarding historical research. The Ixopo area came into the limelight briefly when Alan Paton’s Cry the Beloved Country was filmed here. Descendants of 1820 Settlers live in the region, also those of Dick King who owned a farm near Ixopo. There are others who have as their forebears Henry Francis Fynn and Henry Ogle, notable pioneers of Natal. Cecil John Rhodes began his new life in South Africa in this district.

This is truly a lovely production recalling great times and deeds, now destroyed by the march of time and destructive politics. Originally a paperback, now re-bound into brown hard cover leather, with the original wraps retained.
