The Story of Hogsback
by Trevor Webster
The 2nd Edition of The Story of Hogsback was launched in 2016, after the 1st Edition was sold out. In his book Trevor Webster has written a short, popular history of Hogsback, abounding with local stories and photographs, many taken by Ken Harvey.
There is something for everybody in this account of Hogsback; the past speaks to the present through pictures, paintings, poems, anecdotes and facts. It captures the magical atmosphere, the extraordinary history, the beautiful Nature and the interesting people of the village of Hogsback.
Trevor's narrative puts Nature paramount and mentions the San people and the conflict between the Xhosa and colonists in the nineteenth century. Of course, the story also covers the pioneering origins of the Hogsback Village.
Copies of The Story of Hogsback are available at most shops and hotels in Hogsback or from Trevor Webster.
