About the book:

When working on the UNESCO Slave Route project, Botlhale Tema discovered the extraordinary fact that her well-established family and community at Welgeval had been founded by two boys who had been slaves in the mid-nineteenth century. She pieced together the fragments of information from relatives and members of the community, and scoured the archives to produce the story, The People of Welgeval. Against the historical backdrop of slavery, colonialism, the Anglo-Boer War and the slow but calculated construction of apartheid, The People of Welgeval is a superbly crafted and dramatic historical novel. It is an epic story about friendship and family, and about how people transform themselves from victims to victors.
