Vrouw Grobelaar and Her Leading Cases

by Perceval Gibbon

In this new volume of tales the author "deals with the back-world of Boer superstition, the kind of story we may believe to be told round winter fires on lonely farms. The Vrouw Grobelaar, the narrator, will capture the affections of every reader with her shrewd common sense, her sharp tongue, and trenchant philosophy of life... The tales themselves range over every variety of subject, from the idyllic to the purely horrible."
