The Great Thirst
About the Book
“An epic tale of the BaNare people, the Kalahari Desert, and the coming of the twentieth century. William Duggan turns history into legend and myth as he spins this yarn...rich and full of wonderful characters too good to be missed, a beautiful first novel.
“Captures the courage, imagination, wit, and warmth that have sustained black Africa through its tumultuous passage.”
—New York Times Book Review
—Cleveland Plain Dealer
“Duggan is a genuine storyteller...here is a good story, cleverly told.”
