About the Book

Echoes from the Elands is a compilation of true short stories, poems, and historical tidbits echoed from very real folks who lived and who are still alive in Elands River Valley, South Africa. The stories span from the 1900s until today. These are stories of love, hardship, poverty, courage, kindness, humor, and humble everyday living. For the author, these are true, untainted history—history that matters.

About the Author

Cindy lives, on a farm, in a unique part of South Africa, the Elands River Valley. Even though she has no previous experience in writing, she just had to record and regale the stories of the old folks in her street. She believes that these stories form part of the history that matters. Cindy is married to Adrian and they have a daughter and a son, who are now independent. She also has a great love for her cats and gardening and has notions of writing when she is retired.
