About this product
- DescriptionIn 1878, aspiring entomologist Hans Bengler travels to the Kalahari Desert in hopes of making a name for himself by discovering a previously unkwn insect or two. There he encounters a boy named Molo, an orphan whose family has been killed by European colonists. Bengler civilizes the boy by rechristening him Daniel, teaching him to pray to the Christian god, and finally bringing him home to Sweden. The boy is bewildered and awed by the new land, cut off from his culture and the spirits of his family, and Bengler finds that raising a child across a great cultural divide is more difficult than he imagined. A psychological drama of one boy's struggle to find his place in a new land far from home, Daniel is a compelling vel for our modern globalized world.
