This work is the long-awaited sequel to the historian Nigel Penn’s award-winning book Rogues, Rebels and Runaways, in which he entertained and informed readers with stories of the lives of some remarkable characters from early Cape history. In this new volume Penn, a consummate raconteur and storyteller, brings to life an assortment of extraordinary personalities from the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. These remarkable stories, told with élan, erudition and humour, throw light on our extraordinary past and reveal much about social relations and human experience in the early Cape colony.
Nigel Penn is Professor of History at the University of Cape Town and the author of several books, including Rogues, Rebels and Runaways and The Forgotten Frontier, three of which have won the UCT Book Award.
