The Golden Journey Prequel
Heart of Gold
This is the story of a young woman born in the heart of the gold-mining fields of the Witwatersrand. Her English, Dutch and Belgian ancestors were the early pioneers who created South Africa. These bold, restless, horizon-seeking forebears, together with family tragedies and the epoch-making events of of the first half of the 20th Century, shaped the character of this strong-willed girl, directing her along the extraordinary path of her own Golden Journey.
Nearer to my 7th decade than I care to admit I have earned a living as a soldier, truck-pusher, sailor and magazine publisher. Still searching for the exciting things over the horizon.
