The conflict leads to a protracted war that changes the shape of the sub-continent forever.The riveting true story, told here in full for the first time, not only tells a compelling tale of hostility, intrigue and suspicion, it also introduces the reader to the unforgettable colonial leaders and their African counterparts who helped shape the outcome.You will delve into the complex personality and drive of Cape Colony magistrate Hamilton Hope who attempts almost single-handedly to impose colonial rule on the Baphuthi people in Quthing in southeastern Basutoland (todays Lesotho).

Learn, too, the mind and motives of his adversary King Moorosi who fiercely resists his attempts, and the French missionary Frederick Ellenberger who tries desperately to reconcile the two opposing forces of colonialism and independence to prevent war.MOOROSI provides a compelling look at colonialism, imperialism and cultural conflict that has significance for the world today.Learn more and view people and places in the book on the MOOROSI website - http://www.moorosi.com
