More About This Title Bundu
A classic Afrikaans novel full of romance, adventure, and compassion, translated for the first time into English
In a place near Mozambique, drought is causing devastation. Hosts of desperate natives seek refuge in a forgotten outpost, an underresourced clinic run by a small group of volunteers and courageous nuns. But the human flow soon becomes too much for them, and there is no help from outside. Within the small isolated community, a plan takes shape that is as outrageous as it is inspired—a last bid to acquire more supplies. This tale is about the people and the animals of Africa in the heights of their beauty and the depths of their despair. It is a love story and a meditation on the mystery of our powers and the limitations that we share with our brothers, the animals.
