Review:

" The Lost World of the Kalahari (1958) and The Heart of the Hunter (1961)...are loathed by San scholars and serious ethnologists. But they matter. Van der Post gave a face and a story to a discarded people before anyone else thought to do so." ( Guardian)

"A master storyteller, he had the knack of identifying the significant, poetical image" ( Sunday Times)

From the Publisher:

In this enthralling book van der Post establishes his role as a distinguished explorer and writer describing the rediscovery of the Bushmen, outcast survivors from Stone Age Africa.
