Dervla Murphy has been recording her travel experiences-treks through (among other places) India, Transylvania, and several countries in Africa-for well over thirty years. In South from the Limpopo, she continues her writings on the African ...
African continent, bringing her unique insights to the still-troubled country of South Africa.
This three-part journey of more than 6,000 miles took Murphy through all nine provinces of the new South Africa. She stayed in remote impoverished ex- homeland villages, the luxurious homes of rich whites and the simple homes of poor whites. This powerful book places the complex and apparently insoluble problems of South Africa in a new light, and movingly exhibits the great love she and the people she met share for the country.
