9781491883952: Zachariah: The Boer Diamond

ZACHARIAH (Sakkie) is the story of a boy with the Second Boer War as a factual backdrop. Sakkie, a young boy of fifteen years old, leaves home in Cape Town to join his father and brothers in the Commando fighting the British, under Kitchener, in the bush of South Africa. His friend, Dawie, accompanies him. They travel by train with the corps of Cecil John Rhodes as far as Kimberly. He joins the Commando there and has his first taste of chaos in battle. He is bush-wise from the lessons he has learnt from his father and brothers but learns a lot more in the months to come. Sakkie is given a diamond under strange circumstances and thereafter is harassed due to the misconception that he knows the whereabouts of the source of the diamonds. After the signing of the surrender by the Boers, he visits relatives in Pretoria. It is on his way to Pretoria that he meets Tish, a young girl, who changes his outlook on life forever. Sakkie's journey is filled with the dangers of the bush of those days and the greed and resentment of men in general. Potential robbers of the "Kruger Millions" unknowingly come to their aid.

About the Author:

The author was born in South Africa in 1942 and spent his teens of the 1950's on a small farm just outside Naboomspruit in the Northern Province of South Africa, during which time he came to love the sounds, smells and sights of the bush. He did his basic training with 1st Special Service Battalion in Bloemfontein and has happy memories of army life in the bush. He also spent twenty five years training in the martial arts. During his work in a steel mill and underground in a diamond mine, he yearned to be back in the bush and although his profession was Project Manager, his love of the bush remained. It was during this time that the in-depth research into his first novel - Zachariah: The Boer Diamond - began. After a successful publishing, the research for his second work began. The book carries on with this period after the Boer War, with a new character, Naas, searching for the treasure of Kruger's Gold. Malcolm now lives with his wife, Lorraine, in Horsham, England when not travelling back to South Africa as an excuse for research on his next book. If you meet a red-haired woman, you will meet a crowd. - Old Irish Proverb
