It’s a Pity I didn’t Bring any Swords – Martin Hatchuel

It’s a Pity I didn’t Bring any Swords’ is a fantastic youthful tale involving a courageous boy called Leaf, his dogs, a small boat, and ghosts at sea. All the way down the coast – from Noetzie Beach, east of the Knysna Heads, to Mossel Bay far away to the west – This story weaves imagination around actual historic events.
Martin Hatchuel is a Knysna resident, writer, horticulturist, and tourism consultant with interests and experience in writing about history, culture, and the environment – and a particular talent for interpreting these subjects for the general public.  He is also the author of Belthar’s Garden, available on Kindle, published in 2015.
