The Matabele people of South Africa

In Central Park Story Book One, Christopher Middleton mentions a tribe in Africa called the Matabele who choose not to walk in straight lines because they consider straight lines evil.

The tribe he’s referring to is pictured in the photo to the right, and the book he mentions is Sir Lauren Van der Post’s stunning novel, A Story Like the Wind, another coming of age story, and one that I thoroughly enjoyed reading when I was Christopher’s age.
