18 editions published between 1969 and 2011 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pacing and perspective of Bosman's tales-framed as told by the perfectly named character Oom Schalk Laurens-are unlike anything else in English. As these 21 fable-like stories of hard luck on the veld unfold, a captivating picture of an intimate, then vanishing (and now vanished) world unfolds. The closest comparison may be Robert Frost poems or Bob Dylan songs
