A Walk with a White Bushman offers a tempting preamble to many longer explorations. For those who have, it offers the kind of renewed inspiration of which there can never be too much.
Laurens van der Post shared a deep-rooted attachment to Europe, Africa and Japan and this book is a testament to his commitment to writing and initiating cultural and political commentaries on the issues and personalities of his time. A Walk with a White Bushman brings together his conversations with Jean-Marc Pottiez. The result is a book brimming with ideas, insights, people and events; at once thoughtful and exciting, mellow yet full of promise, autobiographical but also topical.
