From my hilltop a living history of South Afric
by Guest Author
Stan Danemans new compelling ebook on South Africa was published in December 2012. This unique book is narrated by Professor Marula an old tree and Elder Statesman in South Africa. He recalls the changing scene in the country over his long life time.
From my hilltop I have looked down on the living history of South Africa. From my early days understanding the Rules of the Southern African plains I realized just how much I loved the country and its peoples. We lived in a magnificent world each species knowing their role in the circle of life in Africa. As I aged and became a Professor I enjoyed meeting with the leaders of the species and discussing the changes that were taking place in the country
Shaka played under my canopy and arranged my seeds into battalions, as a man Nelson sat in my shade and contemplated his vision for the country, FW de Klerk discussed with me the need to change course. My meeting Charlize Theron and her kiss on my cheek made me blush!

WHAT THE READERS SAY
As someone whose connections with South Africa up to now at least have been vicarious via sport (mainly through cricket and rugby) Stan Danemans eBook on the history of South Africa is eye-opening. Told via the appealing metaphor of a personified tree the work concentrates on the history of southern Africa from the arrival of the Europeans it was they who after millennia set in motion the events that brought about radical and rapid change to the land.
The history is told as befits a personified tree from a romantic rather than a clinical point of view. Using the skill of a poet, Stan Daneman informs and illustrates while engaging the reader.this is an excellent introduction to South Africa. Stan Daneman gets behind the facts and explores the culture that made the country. Bob Little Writer, Author, Broadcaster United Kingdom
