Round the Nguni fires

Scheepers, M

Beskikbaarheid: In stock


Quick Overview

Round the Nguni fires in the hills of Zululand, Gogo tells stories at night about the old ones and the ancestors. Tales of the spirits that wander after dark. Stories about glittering eyes that gleam in the shadowy depths of the bush. About the clever Mountain Hare and the sly Yellow Mongoose, and about all the other creatures that share the earth with us.

Come listen to this charming collection of Zulu-folktales – story treasures that range from the comical and mischievous to the spooky and mystical – as they were told to the author by a range of Zulu speakers from in and around Vryheid. Whether you grew up with stories about Mzimi and Magilogilo or not – these tales are quintessentially African and compulsory reading for everyone who loves this marvelous continent!



81-year-old Myra Scheepers, who made her literary debut with this publication, was awarded the US Woordfees’ Debut Prize for the original Afrikaans edition, Om die Nguni-vure. She lives on the farm Bet-el and, with her husband Adriaan, still runs a business in the town of Vryheid. Myra is a mother of 4, grandmother of 11 and great-grandmother of 8. She is aptly called “ghokie” (an endearing form of the Zulu-word gogo, meaning grandmother) by not only her own grandchildren, but by all children who know and love her.
