"To the group of settlers, newly arrived from England, the Cape Colony was a strange and disturbed place. There were rumours of past wars with the Xhora tribesmen and countless frustrations for the pioneer farmers as they tried, with difficulty, to grow crops.

He grew sick of the poverty-striken farm, and the blind faith of his God-fearing father.
