Sample text from San’s Quest:
San was a bushman drawing who lived on a rock in a cave deep in the Karoo.
He was the only bushman in the cave. Engraved with him were his spear and boomerang.
During the day he remained on the rock as humans would visit the cave at times.
Only at night he would climb from his rock and wander around the cave.
He would walk from wall to wall just to make sure he didn’t miss a fellow drawing even though he knew there was none other.
He never left his cave – he was too scared of what laid beyond it and he feared the unknown.
He had taken a peek before, but it was dark and the only thing he could see was the little lights that covered the dark heavens. From inside he would sit and watched them for hours.
He couldn’t help but wonder how it must be to gaze upon the lights from outside his cave.
