'Francois, how many men up at the face?' 'Cave-in.' Francois's voice was now hysterically shrill. 'Cave-in.' He broke Sean's grip and raced away towards the lift station, the mud flying from his gumboots. His terror infected Sean and he ran a dozen paces after Francois before he stopped himself. For precious seconds he wavered with fear slithering round like a reptile in his stomach; go back to call the others and perhaps die with them or follow Francois and live. Into the wilds of Natal in the 1870s are born Sean and Garrick Courtney, the twin brothers who could not be more different. Fate, war and the jealous schemes of a woman are to drive them even further apart. But as history unfolds a continent is awakening. And on its horizon is the promise of fortune, adventure, destiny and love...

From the Back Cover:

One of the world's great storytellers, Wilbur Smith's captivates readers' imaginations in this classic novel of passion, adventure, and one man's destiny.

ON A CONTINENT, WHERE MAGNIFICENT RICHES WERE HIDDEN...
He began life at his twin brother's side, soon running wild on his father's ranch on the edge of Africa. But violence, desire, and fate sent Sean Courtney into exile―where he would fight and love his way to extraordinary success and heartbreaking failure...

LIVES WOULD BE LIVED AND LOST.
In a place called The Ridge of White Waters, Sean made a life-long friendship, mined a fortune of gold, and met his own demons. Then an act of cunning betrayal struck―and ignited a new adventure to a new frontier.

AND TO THE DARING WENT THE GREATEST FORTUNE OF ALL...
From facing the murderous charge of a towering bull elephant to watching men die unspeakable deaths, Sean fought new enemies, forged new allies―and dreamed of establishing a family on a farm of his own. But the young man who had lived by his courage, sweat, and blood was about to discover that the past still had its claws in him...

"Only a handful of 20th century writers tantalize our senses as well as Smith...a rare author who wields a razor-sharp sword of craftsmanship."
Tulsa World
