the expedition to the boabab tree

In the Afrikaans language many books are published. Some are being translated into other languages. Some stay in their orginal hide, vobered for others.

Here you find part of the work of the South African writer Wilma Stockenström who writes in the Afrikaans language. She wrote about the expedition to the boabab tree, alreay in 1988.

Her fellow countryman (although he moved to Australia) J.M. Coetzee translated her words and sentences and meaning into English.
