A NovelBook - 2003
A shocking historical novel re-creates the tragic life of Sarah Baartman, an African bushwoman born in the colony of Good Hope, South Africa, in 1790 and the exploitation and cruelty she faced in nineteenth-century Europe as a subject of scientific curiosity, in a compelling novel of racism, sexism, and European imperialism.
