Abstract:

The world in the 1940s and '50s was a very different place from what it is now, but nowhere more so than South Africa. This is a book of nostalgia, of a boyhood in Durban and in particular Isipingo Beach on the Natal South Coast. Of a time where nature reigned and school boys had the freedom to roam far and wide, to explore and enjoy a unique environment. Dick Knight lived in Durban from 1944 to 1950, then in Isipingo Beach from 1950 to 1958. He has lived in New Zealand from 1961 until the present, returning to South Africa on holiday several times in that period. Africa: My Youth is his boyhood experience and his tribute to the land of his birth. It will awaken nostalgic memories in the minds of most of his peers, and it will also paint a graphic picture for today's younger generation.
