On a camping trip through the Kalahari bush Uys Lafra meets Teecha, of the San people. In a 7 day "apprenticeship" he is taught the basics of physical survival, and absorbs the Bushman's view of life. Teachings on faith, destiny, spiritual balance, on the nature of spirit and the beginning and ending of all things, overturn his own assumptions and change his life forever.
Uys Lafra has spent his life in the computer industry in South Africa. During 1989 to 1992 he took a sabbatical and ran safaris in Namibia and Botswana, where he met 'Teecha' the Bushman, featured on the cover.
