South Africa, 1901, the height of the second Boer War. Sarah van der Watt and her son are taken from their farm by force to Bloemfontein Concentration Camp where the English promise they will be safe. Johannesburg, 2010. 16-year-old outsider Willem just wants to be left alone with his books and his dog. Worried he's not turning out right, his ma and her boyfriend send him to New Dawn Safari Training Camp. Here they 'make men out of boys'. Inspired by real events, this book uncovers a hidden colonial history and present-day darkness while exploring our capacity for cruelty and kindness.
