It’s 1899 and Philippa’s fiancé Nduku has just broken off their engagement. She is heartbroken after all, she has followed him from Kimberley, where they first met, to the goldfields of Johannesburg. In this bustling new city, tensions are mounting between the South African Republic and the gold-hungry British Empire. When war is declared, the mines are shut down and migrant workers are ordered to leave town.

But how do you get home and out of harm’s way when there are no running trains and home is hundreds of kilometers away? You walk. Over perilous terrain, Nduku and Philippa and seven thousand others walk to Natal.

Disguised as a mineworker’s wife, for Philippa is white, she and Nduku talk about their true histories, about their fears and hopes, and with every footfall the possibility of lasting happiness seems within reach if only they can survive, and if only they can weather the storm of an unexpected third player in their troubled romance.

Set during an incredible event in South African history, The Longest March is a tale of heady determination, and a tribute to the perseverance and courage of ordinary men and women when faced with extraordinary circumstances.

A Walk Worth Taking

A unique portrait of an aspect of history that wasn't covered in high school: the intimate and complex lives of Zulu miners as they negotiated sexual appetites, deep attractions and cultural confusion in a climate of oppression, gangsterism and violence. Possibilities of love across race, gender and a gruelling journey are explored and, for some characters, absolutely annihilated. Long story short: recommended reading.
