The mountain Bushmen of Basutoland

£24.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

James Walton, who has illustrated Mrs. How's book, spent thirteen years in Basutoland, during which time he copied paintings from hundreds of rock shelters, often hidden in remote valleys, accessible only after long treks on horseback, and hitherto unknown. In this book author and illustrator have worked together to present a picture of the life and art of the last African rock painters, the Mountain Bushmen. ~~ Rock paintings and rock engravings have been recorded from many parts of Africa but it is only in the wild, mountainous country of Basutoland that the rock artists continued to paint within living memory. Marion Walsham How was born in Basutoland and there she met Basutho who had painted with the Bushmen in their rock shelters. From them she learned some of the secrets of the diminutive artists and in these pages she tells of the Mountain Bushmen who were living in Basutoland at the end of the last century. Her story is based on her own personal experiences and on information supplied by people who actually knew the Mountain Bushmen.
