Norman John Gillies was one of the last children ever born on St Kilda, five years before the whole population was evacuated forever to the British mainland. People had lived on these islands for over four thousand years, developing a thriving, tightly-knit society that knew nothing of crime or money, and took care of its weakest members without hesitation. At the mercy of the seasons and the elements, a unique lifestyle evolved, based around resilience, mutual trust and caring. What was it like to grow up in such harsh conditions? Why and how did this ancient way of life suddenly cease in 1930? Where did the islanders go, and what became of them? And what became of Norman John, child of St Kilda?

There's an old Kikuyu proverb that goes - "No matter how long the night, the day is sure to come." We have been through a very dark night, ... but the actions of our people show us that we are forcing the sun to rise.' Trevor Manuel spoke these powerful words in 1989 just before the collapse of apartheid. He had spent the decade as a community leader, freedom fighter and political activist, and now he and his comrades were about to lead the final onslaught against injustice in South Africa. This book tells the story of Trevor Manuel's dramatic life: from his childhood in Cape Town, through the years of his bravery and determination as a leader in the struggle against apartheid, to his rise through the ranks of the ANC to become the country's longest-serving Minister of Finance. They Fought for Freedom tells the life stories of southern African leaders who struggled for freedom and justice. In spite of the important roles they played in the history of southern Africa, most of these leaders have been largely ignored by the history books. The series tells their stories in an entertaining manner, in clear language and aims to restore them to their rightful place in history.
