  • "The main setting of this extraordinary novel is the stunning landscape of South Africa, but vivid episodes also take place in Indonesia, France, Holland and England. The dramatic presentation of actual and fictional characters in a background of historical events is a narrative technique of which Mr. Michener has long been the acknowledged master - and never more powerful than here. The story begins 15,000 years ago with a clan of small brown people - the San, later called "Bushmen" - who are facing a crisis."
