In the shadow of the Great White Queen : The Edendale Kholwa of Colonial Natal, 1850 – 1906
Pietermaritzburg: Natal Society Foundation , 2020. 358 p. 24 cm. Soft. ISBN 9780639804002.  In English
This history of one of the earliest nineteenth-century mission stations in Natal traces the transformation in the lives of a community that settled first at Indaleni near Richmond and later at Edendale a few miles from Pietermaritzburg. Initially an independent mission under the religious and educational tutelage of James Allison, who left the Methodist Church to pursue independent mission work, Edendale was the first African community in Natal to experiment with freehold tenure. This had implications for the way its inhabitants were integrated into colonial society as educated, market-orientated producers and as citizens. They sought equal recognition, no different from British settlers.
