Description

The autobiography of a black South African, describing the struggle for human dignity in the quagmire of poverty, violence and apartheid.  Moving briskly from the rural reserves to the slums and shantytowns of Pretoria and Capetown, the author reconstructs his development from child to adult and his growing awareness of the limits imposed on his horizon by the system.
