Synopsis

Rainbow Reading Level 5 - Landscape: The Message Box D by Lesley Beake

This touching story traces the life story of a boy from his rural beginnings in Mpumalanga, through the path of his life, to the present day when he returns to the place of his birth. As a young boy, he leaves his family home to go and look after his ageing uncle. He leaves behind everything that he loves and goes to an unfamiliar environment. He moves from rural Mpumalanga to a township setting. He is educated at a school there. He joins the struggle before going to university overseas. Finally, he flies back to his country. His brother fetches him at the airport to take him back home, where he meets his father who is now an old man.
