Very good condition. 'For years, it has been called a "deteriorating situation." Now it is war. All over South Africa, cities are battlegrounds, and radio and television stations are under siege. The fighting is fierce around the airports, where fugitive white people are mobbing to board departing flights. Bam and Maureen Smales have no such option. They take up their servant July's suggestion and drive with their children to his remote home village. For fifteen years July has been the decently treated black servant, totally dependent on them. Now he becomes their host, their savior - their keeper.'.
