For the boys of a Venda village, life revolves around the fortunes of Mafangambiti, a fighting bull whose victories are the talk of the countryside and whose rampages are destructive enough to bring his life into question.
Every page in this closely observed study of a cattle-herding boyhood vibrantly evokes the African setting. And there is no mistaking the epic quality of the story and the heroic stature of its protaginist, Mafangambiti - rugged, fearless, challenging, indomitable. Inevitably he becomes a symbol of Africa's will to endure, to survive, to come back.
