The first in a series of three, this book tells the story of a Chief born to rule but forced by circumstance to leave his father’s kraal. This book covers his early life and includes the Battle of Amalinda. It was at night, according to tradition, when the sun set and the campfire roared that all the villagers congregated to hear the stories of the ancestors. At one such gathering of the people, Andile was sure that he saw the outlines of some of the ancestors in the shadows made by the tall trees as they moved slowly in the breeze. This sent shivers down his spine. “Tonight,” said Utatumkhulu, “let me tell the story of Chief Maqoma, one of the best known Xhosa chiefs in the Frontier Wars of the 1800s."
