Dow writes this world the way men and women in her country sing – with a zest fed by connection to the earth and to a shared past … The High Court Judge is an astute diagnostician of the ills – social, biological and political – of her country, and of Africa in general. With this book she will help to change things.Morag Fraser, The Age
To read Far and Beyon’ is to take a trip to Africa in the hands of a knowledgeable guide, who understands your world as well as knowing her own territory backwards.
I strongly recommend this book, especially to those interested in post-colonial Africa and in the need to be selective in choosing which practices from another culture to accept.Me, You, and Books
