The Story of Racheltjie de Beer [2012]

When their wagon breaks down, the De Beers are forced to find shelter on a local farm in the Eastern Free State of South Africa. Winter has arrived and, as dark clouds laden with snow start to roll in over the Drakensberg mountains, tragedy strikes.

Inspired by the beloved tale that has been passed down from generation to generation, this is a poignant story of hardship, sacrifice and selfless love set against the harsh backdrop of the South African bushveld during the 1800s.

A South African bestseller, it is available in English, Afrikaans and Dutch in leading book stores and as an ebook
