Write a review.

Dow writes this world the way men and women in her country sing – with a zest fed by connection to the earth and to a shared past … The High Court Judge is an astute diagnostician of the ills – social, biological and political – of her country, and of Africa in general. With this book she will help to change things.

Morag Fraser, The Age

To read Far and Beyon’ is to take a trip to Africa in the hands of a knowledgeable guide, who understands your world as well as knowing her own territory backwards.

Keren Lavelle, Good Reading
I strongly recommend this book, especially to those interested in post-colonial Africa and in the need to be selective in choosing which practices from another culture to accept.
