Dalene Matthee Omnibus: Circles in a Forest & Fiela's Child
The two best selling South African classics from Dalene Matthee now available in one volume. Fiela's Child: A child wanders too far into Knysna Forest ...he never returns. Nine years later government officials working on a census find a white child living with a Coloured family in the mountains beyond the forest. They take him away from stricken Fiela, who has brought him up as her own son, and give him back to his 'original' family. Circles in the Forest: Saul Barnard is a man with a self-imposed mission - to halt the wanton destruction of the Knysna Forest, home of wild elephants and the fiercely independent families of woodcutters. For years he has protected the forest from intruders, and has developed a mystical kinship with the spirit of Old Foot, the majestic and indomitable bull elephant. When word goes round that Old Foot is on the rampage, Saul is propelled towards a terrible confrontation that will change his future for ever.
