His Longing Desire to Return to Our Place
This chapter describes Reverend James Read's accident as he was about to cross the Cape Colony's eastern border at the Sundays River. The description goes thus. His horse suddenly slips on a muddy slope and falls on all fours, trapping itself between two small trees. Read runs his hands over his body and makes sure that he is not injured. All the while, the rain continues to drop heavily, so unlike the drizzle of his English childhood that gently dripped off his hat brim. Along with seven men who have accompanied him from the London Missionary Society's Bethelsdorp mission station, Read is officially on the hunt for stolen cattle. However, his real aim is to search for a young Caffer Chief with a longing desire to return to his place—Jan Tzatzoe.
