The Mountain Bushmen of Basutoland


Rock paintings and rock engravings have been recorded from many parts of Africa but it is only in the wild,mountainous country of Basutoland that the rock artists continued to pain within living memory.The author was born in Basutoland and there she met Basotho who had painted with the Bushmen in their rock shelters.From them she learned some of the secrets of the diminutive artists and in these pages she tells of the Mountain Bushmen who were living in Basutoland at the end of the last century.
