Stella Branca: The Maverick

Stella Branca: The Maverick

Presented by The King's English Bookshop at The King's English Bookshop

Join Stella Branca for a signing of her new book, The Maverick. Appalled at the desperate plight of his South African countrymen following the Anglo-Boer War (1899-1902), a young clergyman dedicates his life to achieving their upliftment. From Namaqualand, an isolated semi-desert, Dr. Willem Steenkamp battles near-illiteracy, superstition and intermarriage and pleads for irrigation. A fiery orator, his political opponents fear his burgeoning influence: imprisonment and slander follow his successes.
