This is a moving and graphic biography of the great Moshesh,founder and potentate of the Basotho nation of South Africa.His life forms a striking contrast to the subjects of Dr. Peter Becker’s earlier biographies.For while they–Shaka Zulu,Dingane,Mzilikazi and others–were autocrats who invariably ruled by fear,Moshesh was wise and kindly,a leader whose exploits were renowned not only throughout Southern Africa,but in countries beyond the sea.A brilliant leader,and statesman.
