457 pages6 hours


This novel is a sequel to Chameleon Mountain. Two generations later, Falk Baartman is born in Die Hel. He attends school in Oudtshoorn and represents SWD in the first ever Craven Week. Later he starts a business in Prince Albert for artists and writers. There, a jealous rival objects to his race classification and writes to the Population Registration Office in Cape Town. Falk receives a letter in a buff envelope that changes his life: it informs him that he has been reclassified Cape Coloured. This is his story, a common story of millions of South Africans denied full citizenship in the land of their birth. But Falk is not an ordinary man, and his fight for his birthright is both dramatic and heartrending.
