Abstract
'First with your head and then with your heart' is advice Peekay, a seven-year-old boy who dreams of being the welterweight champion of the world, will carry throughout his life. Born in a South Africa divided by racism and hatred, this one small boy will come to lead all the tribes of Africa. And in a final conflict with his childhood enemy, the Judge, Peekay will fight to the death for justice. The Power of One is an unforgettaable story of the triumph of the human spirit - a spellbinding tale for all ages. First published in 1989, Bryce Courtenay's debut novel, The Power of One, is now a classic bestseller. This commemorative edition includes a Foreword written by the author shortly before his death in 2012.
