Roger Webster published his first volume of At the Fireside stories in 2001. It became an overnight bestseller and he went on to write three more books filled with magnificent stories from southern African.
Now, ten years later, Roger Webster is back with another, all new volume of fireside tales of people and events that have shaped our remarkable country. The author brings to life anecdotes from our country's past, either forgotten or, perhaps, left untold as a result of political prejudice, These are tales of courage and failure, honour and greed, hope and despair, unexpected and extraordinary achievements but, ultimately, stories of real people.
'In the good old African tradition of storytelling, Roger has an eye for the unexpected angle, a nose for the story behind the story. His passion and love for stories from our past have touched tens of thousands of people through his books, his radio talks, his conversations with groups and individuals. May there be many more Roger Webster books after this one.'
