This is the story of an adventurer, Michael Callender, who is of Scots/Irish descent and who lived for 40 years in the Republic of South Africa. His title is an apt description of an extraordinary land that is made up of a brilliant scenery, charismatic peoples, and an inheritance of savagery. The leopard is a creation of beauty, razor wire a symbol of harshness. In the author's belief, this summarises South Africa - a country of raw contradiction. Michael Callender presents a collection of rousing stories as a British immigrant who witnessed a wildly oscillating pendulum from the peak of Apartheid in the late 1960s to the 'New South Africa' as termed today. His portrayal of the 'Wild South', as he describes this domain, is presented in a manner that is in harmony with the author's independent spirit that found deep inspiration in a challenging and exciting land. The descriptions of the warriors, the adventurers, sportsmen, and the mavericks that he encountered, set against the kaleidoscopic panorama of a country that remains a frontiersland, is an essential read for those that are either linked to the country or have aspirations to learn more about this controversial and emotive land.
