South African Eden PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

South African Eden free pdf On 22 March 2002, Beverley van Schoor was brutally murdered by an assassin hired by her 22-year-old daughter, Sabrina. Is it coincidence that Sabrina is the daughter of Louis van Schoor, the most notorious mass murderer of the apartheid era? And was it by chance that the actions of both father and daughter were motivated by racism? Are there perhaps deeper issues involved? Were Sabrina and Louis van Schoor's murders the result of prejudices prevailing in their country? During the course of her penetrating investigation into why the Van Schoors did what they did, Heidi Holland finds herself asking the question: Where does racism reside now that the language to signpost it has changed?

About James Stevenson-Hamilton

James Stevenson-Hamilton (1867-1957) was born on the family estate near Glasgow and educated at Sandhurst. At a loose end after participating in the South African War as an officer in the Inniskilling Dragoons, in June 1902 he was appointed as warden of the Sabi Game Reserve in the Lowveld, along the Eastern Transvaal border with Mozambique. This was later to emerge, thanks to two decades of epic determination on his part, as the world famous Kruger National Park. His frequent and stylish articles on the topic of environment management were published in journals such as The Field, Blackwood's, The Times and The Outspan. These were expanded into books, including Animal Life in Africa (1912), The Lowveld: Its Wild Life and Its People (1929) and Wild Life in South Africa (1947). But it is his passionate memoir - South African Eden of 1937 - which has achieved classic status.
