Nataka Books Reviews: 

The Land is Ours

The title suggests a book about land. In telling the history of South Africa's earliest lawyers, Ngcukaitobi brilliantly weaves in the history of South Africa before the landmarks of 1912 and 1947 which created the divisive landscape one sees.

The history of "the land" and other social issues unfold through the biographies of Msimang, Plaatje, Ka Seme or Jabavu. This book is not really about land. A fitting historical record by Ngcukaitobi.
