The book explores the history, culture and religion of the
Bahurutse in the North-West Province of South Africa. The
historical dates, facts and events of the Batswana, informed
by verbal tradition. They attain greater transparancy when
the chiefs admit European missionaries into their midst. In
this book, Chief Moiloa II plays a prominent role. He led
his migratory tribe to settle at Dinokana and preferred to
have missionaries in his tribe. The largest contribution
towards this book was made by three missionaries from the
Hermannsburg Mission Society, who submitted numerous reports
to their superiors in Germany.

Heinrich Bammann ministered a Lutheran
congregation of the Bahurutshe for ten years.
