Summary

Summary: Set in South Africa during World War II, where a large segment of the Boer population had pro-Nazi sympathies, it tells the story of Peekay, an English boy whose valiant odyssey through a land of tribal superstition and modern prejudice makes him a symbol of belief in oneself to black and white alike. -- From dust jacket.
