Tertius de Klerk: Afrikaner, hapless academic and potential has-been. A drunkenone-night stand with a student, the confrontation, a terrible incident. Tertius mustflee.Like his great-grandfather Basjan before him, Tertius leaves for Patagonia, theremote South American region where his forebears started anew after the Anglo-Boer War. It's a desperate act, but also an opportunity to seek refuge among longlostrelatives on the windswept plains of the continent's southernmost tip.History repeats itself as his spirited wife Alta sets off after him just as hisgreat-grandmother Salome pursued the wayward Basjan across ocean and desert.With a heady mix of adventure and humour, Maya Fowler's novel spans thewide Patagonian plains, and transports you to the New World on Spanish soil,where the Afrikaans language survives to this day.
