From the Publisher:
Dervla Murphy has been recording her travel experiences--treks through (among other places) India, Transylvania, and several countries in Africa--for well over thirty years. In SOUTH FROM THE LIMPOPO, she continues her writings on the African continent, bringing her unique insights to the still-troubled country of South Africa. |This three-part journey of more than 6,000 miles (before, during, and after the elections of 1994) took Murphy through all nine provinces of the new South Africa. She stayed in remote impoverished ex-"homeland" villages, the luxurious homes of rich whites and the simple home of poor whites. In the vast black township of Khayelitsha she made good friends, as she did among the rural Boers of the platteland. She came to realize how simplistic it is to see South Africa's conflict only as "black versus white." her powerful book places the complex and apparently insoluble problems of South Africa in a new light, and movingly exhibits the great love she and the people she met share for the country.
Irish travel writer Dervla Murphy writes of her three voyages to South Africa that coincided with the first multiracial elections in April 1994. On her trips, she learns about the complexity of the post-apartheid political system and shares her love for the people she met.
