van der Post's tale follows young Nonnie and François and their Bushmen companions, Xhabbo and his wife Nuin-Tara, as they confront a thousand miles of the Kalahari Desert -- their only hope of safety lying on the other side. Nor Nonnie and François, both on the brink of adulthood, the trip becomes a pilgrimage of self-discovery as well as an unparalleled adventure.
A gripping novel in its own right and the stunning conclusion to the narrative begun in A Story Like the Wind, A Far Off Place offers a fascinating glimpse into the legendary Africa of Laurens van der Post's own childhood -- an Africa now vanished.
