South Africa in the 1980s is no place to be if you’re black. The irony, of course, is that most people there are black; crushed by the cruel laws of apartheid. But Naledi and her little brother Tiro can’t stop to think about that. Their baby sister is sick, and they have to save her. There’s no money for a doctor. They must fetch their mother, who lives far away in the city of Johannesburg. So the children start walking. On their epic journey of nearly 200 miles, they learn a lot about racism, the power of hope, and being black in a country built for whites…
- A true children’s classic – a powerful story of hope and courage
- Full of real, vivid examples of South African life under apartheid
- This award-winning book was banned in South Africa until 1991
- It now includes a thought-provoking introduction by Michael Rosen
