LEADWOOD (Combretum imberbe)
The LEADWOOD is a big
deciduous tree, with extremely hard wood, which burns slowly,
and therefore produces a most pleasant fire, with good coals.
A fire good for socialising and which serves as an inspiration for
the telling of stories, as is the African custom.
HENRI's LEADWOODFIRE STORY
OK, sorry to disappoint you. These are really Afrikaans
stories. I could have given you a watered down, translated
version, but that would have missed the objective.
I suggest you visit HENRI se HARDEKOOLVUURSTORIE for the original story.
A short English summary of the story is given.
