Ah, But Your Land is Beautiful is set in the 1950s, the time of the
Passive Resistance campaign, the Sophiatown removals, the emergence
of the South African Liberal Party and the early stages of the
Nationalist government in power. Revolving around the everyday
experiences of a group of men and women, whose lives reflect the
human costs of maintaining a racially divided society, Alan Paton,
in a series of vivid and compelling episodes, examines what happens
between people when such political events overtake their lives.
