Musings of a Modest Spy-fellow - 

P.C. Swanepoel

This book is just a collection of the things the writer has seen or experienced or heard or read about during a relatively long life. Mostly it’s about himself  and his own family and people, the Afrikaners. (Very grudgingly he did devote a chapter to his wife’s English ancestors.)
It needs to be explained why the book was written in English and not in his home language. It started with a piece he wrote at the request of a lady in England about his late father’s illegal medical practice. Obviously this was in English. She suggested further writing and so the thing grew until eventually it has taken it’s present form.
