Readers are taken on a fascinating journey down the Orange River in South Africa in this travelogue that interweaves historical detail from the places the author visits with the history of South Africa as a whole. Augmented with the author's own photographs, this is a document of discovery, much like the source material that Dicey himself quotes from-the first European explorers of the South African interior. But unlike early depictions of outlandish animals and men, Dicey's travelogue investigates the waves of human occupation-the San, the Nama, the Griqua, and the Basters-and the subsequent fallout as the indigenous people were moved off their land around the Orange River.
