South Africa's many paths, tracks and roads are long and winding. They twist from the familiar to the uncharted. And so do their stories. Luke Alfred spent more than a year travelling South Africa's highways and byways on foot, exploring the contested history of the country's cities and countryside. From Johannesburg to rural Eastern Cape, down the literal and figurative road to Freedom Park, Alfred stumbled on fascinating places and characters. Written with deep insight, Alfred's eloquent and quirky personal observations are engaging and entertaining. This book offers fascinating little-known stories about our past and our present, and even a hopeful outlook for the future.
