Edited by Howard Thurman
“Olive Schreiner, born in South Africa in 1855, achieved literary fame with the publication in 1883 of The Story Of An African Farm. Her writings show her pioneer work in the struggle for women’s rights and her courageous championship of the African people. Clearly ahead of her time, she has a brilliant, sometimes dazzling mind and a warm, gentle heart that felt deeply the sorrows of all who suffer.” Reverend Howard Thurman, a black theologian, grapples with his admiration for the writing of this South African-born Englishwoman in a long introduction to her 198 pages of writings and parables.
