People of the Eland

Rock Paintings of the Drakensberg Bushmen as a reflection of their life and thought. This is number 415 of 1000 copies.

From the jacket flap:”Unlike other books, however, this one gives the story from, as it were, the viewpoint of the Bushmen. The author by a careful study of the official records of reprisal expeditions against the Bushmen, was able to establish the probable escape routes they used. Then, in the field, she explored these routes in great detail. Ins several cases she found rock paintings showing parties of mounted Europeans which, in number and apparel, agree with the official records of the number of farmers and of troopers who took part in the expedition. These paintings thus appear to be true eyewitness records. In the second and larger part of the book she discusses what is recorded in the literature about the Bushmen of the Drakensberg, tells what is known of their beliefs and attitudes to life and relates these to the content of the paintings developing in the process an interesting theory of associations and avoidances supported by a statistical analysis of the subject matter of the paintings.”
