Publisher's Summary

Saul Barnard is 'n houtkapper met 'n rustelose siel - hy wil vreemdes uit die Bos hou en die vernietiging van die Bos probeer keer. Dan is daar 'n legendariese olifantbul - Oupoot - wat losbreek van sy trop.... Oupoot en Saul het 'n vreemde band tussen hulle. In die groen skemerwêreld van die Outeniekwa loop hulle kringpaaie. Saul Barnard, deur sy mense verwerp en deur gewetenlose houtkopers tot kneg verneder; Oupoot, eindeloos agtervolg deur jagters. 'n Man en sy dier-broer - saamgegooi in 'n ongerepte oerbos, wat stuk vir stuk deur gouddelwers, boskappers en ander uitroeiers vernietig word. Saul volg Oupoot se spoor, al nader aan die waarheid wat sy lewe vir altyd sal verander.

kringe in 'n bos altyd hartroerend

Dis nie net die storielyn nie, maar Daleen Matthee se liefde vir hierdie bos wat deurlopend wondermooi is. kringe in 'n bos is nie 'n goed voel boekie nie, dit ruk jou in jou wese en jy besef telkens hoe jy as mens in die aanklag bank staan.

A masterpiece

This award-winning book is really about the entrapment of the mind by our limited experiential reality. The gripping story of Saul Barnard and the Knysna forest is masterfully told by Dalene Mathee. She seamlessly mastered the sliding forward and backward in time to build to the tragic yet joyful conclusion. A masterpiece. Excellently narrated by Anrich Herbst.

This book makes you proud to be Afrikaans.
Daleen Matthee must have done a lot of investigation to know the BUSH and his people so well and espesially the wild .

Fantastic narration worthy of the outstanding book

Beautifully and cleverly written story of the circles in life, love and nature. The relationships between characters and wholesome description of individuals draws the reader into their lives with ease. Narration and pronounciation of Afrikaans is 100% and an absolute pleasure to listen to!

Engaging and inspiring story

Hierdie boek het ek gelees in St 12 en het daardie tyd nie die storie verstaan en waardeer nie. Nou, 30 jaar later verstaan en kan ek die volle eerlikheid en liefde storie voel. Ek voel soos een met die Groot Voete en die bos.

Uitstekend

Anrich Herbst het die verhaal laat lééf met sy uitstekende lees. Ek het gelag en gehuil; frustrasie, wanhoop, hoop, en vreugde ervaar; deel geword van die bos. Pure genot wat ek nie wou hê moes ophou nie.
