Publisher's Summary

"For I will call you by the name that for fifty years has been honoured by every tribe between Zambesi and Cape Agulbas,—I greet you! Sompseu, my father, I have written a book that tells of men and matters of which you know the most of any who still look upon the light; therefore, I set your name within that book and, such as it is, I offer it to you. If you knew not Chaka, you and he have seen the same suns shine, you knew his brother Panda and his captains, and perhaps even that very Mopo who tells this tale, his servant, who slew him with the Princes. You have seen the circle of the witch-doctors and the unconquerable Zulu impis rushing to war; you have crowned their kings and shared their counsels, and with your son's blood you have expiated a statesman's error and a general's fault."

Awesome

Read this as a teen and it had a big impact on me. A classic from one of the greatest story-tellers of all time! Thanks Audible for making the story of Umslopogaas, Nada, and Mbopo available in audio format.

Still my favourite story.

An excellent novel beautifully written and with first class narration. This book is a hidden gem. Great insight in to the worrior zulu people in the time of chaka.
