New book by Rachel Odhner Longstaff on her experiences in South Africa!

"In the shadow of the Dragon's Back" 

Enhanced by photographs taken by the author's brother, the book is not only a memoir, it is a coming-of-age story, and includes commentary and articles on the political history of the time.

"...a complex and engaging work that places the readers squarely inside both worlds with neither judgment nor regret." 
            Naomi Benaron, author of Running the Rift, winner of the Bellwether Prize for Fiction
"[Longstaff's] memories and musings show that the light of social justice burns brightest in the tall shadows of oppression."
            Prof. Archie Dick, Ph.D, Head of Department of Information Science
University of Pretoria.
