Cry, The Beloved Country

£8.99

Product description

Cry the Beloved Country is the deeply moving story of the Zulu pastor Stephen Kumalo and his son Absalom, set against the background of a land and a people riven by racial injustice. Remarkable for its contemporaneity, unforgettable for character and incident, Cry, the Beloved Country is a classic work of love and hope, courage and endurance, born of the dignity of man.

Published by Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, this is a Hudson River Edition, likely published in 1977 (the book was originally published in 1948). This hardcover book is bound in mid-blue cloth boards, with silver stamping on the spine. There is a small tear in the front pastedown and a mark across the long edge of the book block, but otherwise the pages are clean and bright. The dust jacket has an off-white background with the lettering and art work in dark blue and the author's name in black. The jacket is tanned on the spine and along all edges. There are some signs of shelf-wear

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
