THE INVISIBLE BECOME VISIBLE – Book ThreeProduct no.: HP266
The Great Planet Heist
This represents the third of three novels on history’s forgotten or too little remembered indigenous people who were colonised and enslaved by Europeans. In this novel, we take up again the dramatic story of our Bantu family from the first novel. We follow it as it faces new Portuguese and British intruders and slavery, and experiences imperialism. We see dramatic instances of indigenous people fighting for their culture and their way of life against invaders.
This novel also tells the story of Cecil Rhodes laying the basis for apartheid in South Africa; and the role of the new 500-round Maxim machine gun in military victories by Britain.
