Bloemfontein, die ontstaan van ‘n stad. 1846-1946

In 1846 is ‘n klein Britse garisoen in die nabyheid van die Bloemfontein geplaas in ‘n poging om die vrede in die Transoranje te bewaar: honderd jaar later het hier ‘n stag van meer as sestigduisend inwoners bestaan. Hoe dit gebeur het, is die onderwerp van hierdie nuwe boek deur Karel Schoeman, waarin hy, soos hy self s?, veral geïnteresseerd was in ‘hoe Bloemfontein in die verlede gelyk het en hoe dit was om hier to woon”.
