Anyone who is thinking about reading this book should know that VDP was a major BS artist. Very good at it too, was a friend of royalty and also Jung. If you can find it, read J.D.F. Jones "Storyteller: The Lives of Laurens Van Der Post". VDP was constantly reinventing himself. Many of his stories about everything from his war record to his Bushman connections were exaggerated or just plain invented. People loved to hear this stuff about the great white hunter, the ancient heart of Africa, blah blah blah. To his credit, he did oppose apartheid. If you want an readable book on the Bushmen, try Elizabeth Marshall Thomas' "The Harmless People". At least she actually knew them! BTW The film is called "The Lost World of the Kalahari", BBC 1958. Don't know if you can get it on video. A better bet would be "Kalahari Desert People", by John Marshall.
