Love the book and all the information about my country's early history! BUT there is one small thing about the Author! He does not know a thing about the early life of the Boer! It is because he is an American writing about our history!!!!!He refer to the early life of the Boer as "die lekker lewe" and what it mean is an "easy life"! He does not know what he is talking about! I wonder if he is still alive and would like to tell him myself.
