MY FATHER`S COAT is the acclaimed story by Michael Charton.  It makes the incredible story of South Africa more accessible to visitors and South Africans alike. This is a human story told through the eyes of five prominent and directly-interlinked protagonists spanning 200 turbulent years: Mzilikazi, Kruger, Rhodes, Smuts and Mandela.
A very unique product, providing order and meaning to a notoriously complex subject.
