The Pen Tells it All


Four retired South African nurses have written this collection of stories and articles. They include settings of growing up in a township in pre-democratic South Africa; and a peaceful valley where one of the authors grew up. Interwoven in the stories are cultural practices such as a Khosa boy's circumcision ceremony; ukwemula - the girls' twenty-first ceremony; and the process of eight stages in a traditional Zulu wedding ceremony.
