This remarkable study combines the insights of archeology, history, and anthropology to trace the Khoikhoi from their origins in central Africa to the contemporary politics of the Namaqualand "reserves". It is not a pretty story. Land appropriation, race classification, removals onto reserves, and the practice of vorentoetrouery (marriage upward to breed out Khoikhoi features) are all elements of their recent past.

This study's scholarship, telling biographies, and many illustrations will play an essential role in replacing the stereotype of the herders with some understanding of their past, and perhaps influence their future in the new South Africa.
