Book Condition: very good


Hardcover with dust jacket, green cloth with burgundy titles, 14 by 212 cm, 324 pp. Hardcover is very good with only faint signs of shelf wear, a tiny red dot on the bottom edge of the textblock, and a bookseller label on the front pastedown from Vanguard Booksellers (Johannesburg). The jacket is good with edge wear, chips, and small tears. From the front flap: “This is the true story of John Chavafambira. It is a unique, never-before-written account of a native African medicine man, his life experiences and inner conflicts, etched against the background of two worlds – white and black – in collision. It is an amazing study of seemingly irreconcilable elements, laid in South Africa where the clash of color is most violent. The artistry of the book lies partly in its contrast of primitive taboo and Christian ethic; of communal kraal life and the mechanized slavery of cities; of hereditary practitioner and highly trained physician.”
