This self-published autobiography presents a fascinating and in-depth account of the life story of a black South African doctor who was born and raised in poverty-stricken rural Transkei, became an anti-apartheid activist in his teenage years and was relentlessly hounded by the security police. He was educated at Fort Hare and at the University of Natal Medical School in Durban where he graduated with an MB ChB degree in 1966. At university, Edmund gradually came to embrace an evangelical Christian faith, something that comes out strongly in this narrative.
