CHAPTER 35

The action in this chapter is easy to summarize. But the issues recall for you the barren lands shown in the opening chapters of Books I and II, and the vision for change Kumalo had at Ezenzeleni. Consider, too, today's continuing unrest over land and rights issues in South Africa. As the chapter unfolds, whose ideas seem more realistic to you-Letsitsi's or Kumalo's? But whose feelings do you best understand? Why?

In this chapter, you see that agricultural progress is being made, but the people grumble. Why doesn't Letsitsi show gratitude to the whites who have educated him, or to Jarvis, who pays him? Why does he think that even if the land is restored, the reserves the whites have given blacks are too small for a growing population?



Kumalo feels too old to grapple with such views. If other blacks want to call him a white man's dog because he is grateful to Jarvis, fine. He has gone as far as he can.
