"From 1800 to 1895, the well-known Sebina clan migrated and battled through the storm of history sweeping semi-desert Botswana. 'A Bewitched Crossroad' is the dramatic saga of the clan's conflicts. Here we meet individuals, familiar or not, who are at the crossroads oftribal tradition. From without come the missionaries and the European scra mble for gold; from within come the power-lusting sons of chiefs and the unquenchable thirst for learning the written word. This unforgettable story is seen for the first time through the eyes of a black African, whose portrayal of one tribe's joys and tragedies will reach all." - from the dj. Some light wear to spine ends, else vg in lightly rubbed, nicked, short-hinge-split, verso-tape-repaired dj. A scarce volume. 75.00
