The Illustrated at the Fireside: True Southern African Stories
A new collection of stories about real-life characters and events that have shaped our past and that have never been told before - stories of bravery and honor, greed and failure, hope and despair, but ultimately stories of people who went beyond the expected and of events that surpassed the ordinary.
After the success of the South Africa releases of At the Fireside and At the Fireside Volume 2, Roger Webster is back with a fascinating new collection of stories called The Illustrated At the Fireside bringing these colorful stories to even more vivid detail.
The Illustrated at the Fireside includes:
* Color illustrations of historical figures and events
* Photographs of the real-life characters of the stories
* A selection of the best stories from Volume 1 and 2, now beautifully illustrated
