|The Karoo of South Africa, vast in its stark aridness, imposes an introvertedness in the lives of the generations of the farming folk who live there. A culture of survival yields a litany of family secrets, inescapable tensions and undercurrents which have led to family divisions, even murder. Yet every so often the Karoo yields its own unique brand of enriching surprises. Author Derek Thomas lives there and has been inspired to write this saga, Bloodline, about the De Groot family of the farm Cambria, ambitious sheep farmers who become wealthy through the discovery of gold under the arid earth. These elements of the human lot may not be unique but are part of the intangible heritage of the plains of the Karoo.|
