? The Sunburnt Queen is an extraordinary narrative. The writing?s fresh immediacy brings history to life.?? The Sunday Independent (South Africa)
In the late 1730s, the local inhabitants of South Africa found a seven-year-old girl called Bessie, washed ashore on the beach of the Wild Coast. Bessie was brought up by them, growing into a young woman of legendary beauty and wisdom, and marrying one of the most important tribal chiefs in the area.
Using oral histories and written accounts by early missionaries, Hazel Crampton traces the extraordinary story of Bessie and the turbulent history of the Eastern Cape.
Über den Autor: Hazel Crampton is an artist. She lives in Cape Town and has just started her second book.
