Towards the Far Horizon.

The story of the ox-wagon in South Africa. “The vital role of the ox-wagon in the history of South Africa cannot be overestimated: without this product of the skills of the new settlers and the oxen of the indigenous Khoikhoi, there would have been no opening up of the hinterland, no Kimberley diamond mines, no Witwatersrand goldfields and no Republic of South Africa. Jose Burman tells the whole story of the ox-wagon, its antecedents, its construction, the unsung technicians who built it, the dumb oxen that provided the motive power, and its use over two and half centuries in this country. Yet, Towards the Far Horizon is far more than the story of the ox-wagon: interwoven are tales of rare courage and vignettes of the discoverers, trekkers and transport riders who depended on their wagons for a livelihood”. Includes numerous b/w illustrations and colour plates. Illustrated maps on the end papers.
