Mother Africa shares her wisdom within this collection of more than fifty haiku, through the voices of three formidable women - author Marie Heese, artist Edith Bukani and voice artist Natalia Molebatsi. This charming all South African gift book contains an audio book on CD. Author Marie Heese takes us on a journey, following the footprints of women before us, women amongst us; women just like us to experience the continent of Africa afresh. Enjoy glimpses of shifting landscapes, the shadow of a smile - fleeting moments captured in a handful of words. An ideal moment of repose is captured with wisdom and poise. Grahamstown based South African artist Edith Bukani joins forces with acclaimed author Marie Heese to create a journey worth looking back on; with a set of original licut artworks to accompany the haikus. South African poet Natalia Molebatsi has lent her unique poetic voice to the CD, offering a warm listening experience.
