Read in January, 1976

Wilbur Smith has always been a favorite of readers in Southern Africa. His style of writing seems to hit a note with many who live in that region. This book - the first he published in 1964 - tells the story of two young brothers growing up on a farm in Natal and torn apart by actions in their youth. They become involved in the Zulu Wars and then, as young men become rich in the Witwatersrand Gold Rush. This is family saga that contains everything - danger, poverty, victory, injustice, romance, sickness, sadness. All of the drama and intensity of the Dark continent. A must read.
