Description of this Book

During Pauline Smith's visit to the Little Karoo and environs, she kept a journal containing descriptive material, anecdotes, character sketches and imagery, which would later be worked into five of the stories of The Little Karoo . This journal reveals as much about the creative process as it does about the historical and sociological themes and issues of South Africa at the time.
