A memoir, written partly in English, partly in Afrikaans, by Helen Ruth Slabbert (born Van der Meulen), tells of her childhood during the early 20th century in the town of Vanrhynsdorp (South Africa), where her father was the first appointed minister. These are memories from a time when a Scottish and an Afrikaner family merged together and influenced society in Knysna, Cape Town and Vanrhynsdorp. The memoir ends with a concise version of the author’s family tree, showing her ties to the Youngs and Campbells of Scotland. Small inscription on front free end page. Numerous b&w photographs.
