26 editions published between 1999 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Islands covers the first fifty years of the Dutch settlement at the Cape of Good Hope in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. For the indigenous peoples it is the beginning of the end of a way of life in close interaction with the land, its seasons and rhythms, its harshness and abundance." "Through the life stories of seven men who are involved with beautiful Pieternella, the daughter of the first mixed marriage of the new colony, whole new geographies and new dimensions of experience emerge, new sources and modes of power. And behind these men loom the ones who make the decisions, the commanders and governors and captains, and the still greater, more shadowy potentates, the Lords Seventeen, who are in charge of the Dutch East India Company."--Jacket

Wals met Matilda by Dan Sleigh( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in Afrikaans and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die see. 'n Woonstel. Op die balkon 'n skrywer. Die skrywer kyk af na die blou buitelyn van 'n man wat hom op die plaveisel onder hom doodgeval het, dwing dan sy blik weg en kyk ver oor die flikkerende vroemôresee. Dit is vir hom asof 'n vreemder wordende wêreld die woonstel teen die see vasdruk tot dit 'n eiland word. Die skrywer wag op 'n besoeker. Hy weet sy is gestuur. Sy uitgewery het lank genoeg gepleit om 'n nuwe werk uit die pen wat voorheen die kasregisters laat klingel het. Sy is hul troefkaart. Die vrou waai soos 'n stormsterk suidooster by die woonstel in. Die skrywer gooi wal, hy skerm, hy vlug ... maar kom stelselmatig agter sy enigste verweer is 'n verhaal. Hy vertel wat dit is wat die donker kolk in hom uitgeruk het, en al vertellende herleef in hom 'n ander verhaal, die verhaal van 'n jong man se ontdekking van die groot, groot onbekende. Al vertellende word die verstokte skrywer se skermutseling 'n dans. Uiteindelik wals hy weer met die muse, en dit is noodwendig die lewe-dood-dans, die dans van die menslike bestaan
1795 by Dan Sleigh( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in Afrikaans and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dit is die winter van 1795. Die Kaap is nog Hollands, maar nie meer vir lank nie. Kommissaris Sluysken, die VOC se hoofamptenaar aan die Kaap, het sy Politieke Raad vir 'n vergadering in die Kasteel byeengebring. Hier sit kolonel Robert Gordon, bevelvoerder van die garnisoen, avonturier en Oranje-man. Ook majoor William van Reede van Oudshoorn, lord Hunsdon, vir wie die land en die dorp sy lewe is; verloor hy dit, word hy niks. Hy is bevelvoerder van 'n korps klerke wat vir hierdie krisis hul penne vir gewere moet inruil. Sluysken lees 'n brief voor van die bevelvoerder van die Engelse vloot by Simonstad wat dreig om sy matrose op die land los te laat. William kyk strak voor hom uit. Hy en kameraad Louis Thibault het reeds 'n krygplan ter tafel gele. Sy hoop is op die binnelanders, eerder as op Gordon se garnisoen - die boere, wat so hard soos hierdie kontinent se klippe is. Tussen Gordon en Van Oudshoorn sal die stryd om die siel van hierdie droewe land besleg word. Of vir ewig bly voortwoed. Dan Sleigh se loopbaan as romansier het in Eilande met die pionierstyd aan die Kaap begin, en in 1795 word 'n sirkelgang van die geskiedenis voltrek, met die laaste Kaapse maande onder die Kompanjiesvlag. Sleigh skryf met 'n onfeilbare aanvoeling vir die konflikte en hartstogte wat die totstandkoming en verval van gemeenskappe onderle, en met 'n verstommende oog vir detail
