Content descriptions

General Note: Title from eBook information screen..
Summary, etc.: In 1939, hatred took root in South Africa, where the seeds of apartheid were newly sown. There a boy called Peekay was born. He spoke the wrong language--English. He was nursed by a woman of the wrong color--black. His childhood was marked by humiliation and abandonment. Yet he vowed to survive--he would become welterweight champion of the world, he would dream heroic dreams. But his dreams were nothing compared to what awaited him. For he embarked on an epic journey, where he would learn the power of words, the power to transform lives, and the mystical power that would sustain him even when it appeared that villainy would rule the world: The Power of One.From the Hardcover edition.
