Paul John Myburgh spent seven years with the people of the Great Sand Face, different tribes . . . Juan!uasee, Hei#om, //Kung, /Aiekwe, and finally three years with the last band of /Gwikwe Bushmen in the Central Kalahari Desert. They were years of physical and spiritual immersion into a way of life of which only an echo remains in living memory.
But all does not end there . . .

The Bushman Winter Has Come Book Cover

In 'The Bushman Winter Has Come', the author imagines a continuing journey towards a place where we may, once again, know who we are in the context of our life on this earth, towards a time when we may answer the /Gwikwe’s morning greeting, Tsamkwa/tge? (Are your eyes nicely open?) with a confident Yes.

The Story of Little Foot

Little Foot - Australopithecus prometheus

Discovered in the Cradle of Humankind in South Africa in 1995 by palaeo-anthropologist Ron Clarke, this is the story of a twenty one year excavation of the most complete ape woman fossil skeleton ever found in the history of the world.

In this ground breaking effort by renowned filmmaker Paul John Myburgh, we witness a meeting of destinies between two humanoids - one just three million years older than the other, from the moment of discovery through an incredible visual journey into every subsequent eureka moment.

In a remarkable story of perseverance, luck and strange occurrence we unfold the mysteries of early human life from 3,67 million years ago.
