This book celebrates a rare moment in South African colonial history, in which Lucy Lloyd and |han#kass’o, two individuals from vastly different backgrounds, worked together with a sense of mutual respect and co-operation to produce part of one of the most extraordinary collections of oral literature ever assembled. The book tells the story of Lloyd and |han#kass’o and reproduces extracts from the sidereal narrative of the Day Heart Star. The watercolours reproduced here are interpretations of some of the stories in this collection, and draw on rock paintings from the western and eastern parts of the country; the images and photographs are collected from several individual and national collections.
