One of James Michener's best historical novels takes the reader on a tour of southern Africa from almost the beginning of time until the middle of the 20th century.

Michener was an artist who created books that gives the reader a canvas of words, allowing the reader to become absorbed into his created world.

Almost all of Michener's historical novels are "long". I do not find that a problem....with his novels....they end too soon.

I write from the point of view of someone who does not like to "watch the movie" - the movies almost always disappoint.
