Liesl Jobson Reviews At the Fireside: True Southern African Stories by Roger Webster

At the Fireside: True Southern African StoriesVerdict: carrot

The third volume of At the Fireside: True Southern African Stories, is the fourth book by amateur historian, Roger Webster. He has set about exploring the rich heritage of South Africa’s relatively distant past and bringing to light the stories that have all but been forgotten. Once a stock broker with a mining background, Webster has carved a niche in the popular imagination as a raconteur with the gift of the gab and a keen eye for the lesser known details that make a story come alive.
