Jeremy Harding Jacobson bid farewell to this Nick Ray set in the mid-Fifties.

Jacobson bid farewell to this Nick Ray set in the mid-Fifties. Unlike so many of the tens of thousands of South Africans who would soon be exiled, and whose lives abroad would always seem to them provisional, he was able to settle pretty thoroughly in London.

This travel book combines autobiography, travel, history, politics and philosophy. The Great North Road skirts the northwest border of South Africa, running through Northern Cape Province, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia. The author of this book travelled the length of this historically and symbolically important route to explore the history of colonization.
