The autobiography by A S Mopeli-Paulus, author of the best-selling Blanket Boy's Moon and of its equally prestigious follow-up, Turn to the Dark. Although substantial excerpts were published in Drum magazine at the time of composition in the mid-1950s, this is the first appearance of the complete text. Whether running away from school, serving in the 'Grave Unit' during the Battle of El Alamein or proving an extraordinary leader through the early days of the anti-apartheid struggle, here is the testimony of a vibrant writer. 'The manuscript of The World and the Cattle is very valuable because it identifies the ambiguities the Mopelis adopted towards the different forces which formed the environment of this little Basotho clan, clinging precariously to their land and cattle on the slopes of the Drakensberg.' Alf Stadler in a 1987 paper.
