The most famous and important novel in South Africa's history, and an immediate worldwide bestseller when it was published in 1948, Paton's impassioned novel about a black man's country under white man's law is a work of searing beauty. This is the deeply moving story of the Zulu pastor Stephen Kumalo and his son, Absalom, set against the background of a land and a people riven by racial injustice. Remarkable for its lyricism, unforgettable for character and incident, it is a classic work of love and hope, courage and endurance, born of the dignity of man.
