THE HAPPY WARRIOR (article first published : 2006-05-2)

Thomas Chalmers Robertson was an extraordinarily gifted man - journalist, raconteur, ardent naturalist, war correspondent and Jan Smuts's anti-Nazi propagandist during World War II. His most significant work, however, lay in protecting South Africa's soil and grasses and this became his life-long passion.

Shirley Bell has now written the biography of this fascinating man in a book titled The Happy Warrior: The Story of TC Robertson.

The book will be launched at Ike's Books on May 11 at 17h30 for 18h00 .Guest speaker will be Dr Ian Player, a friend of TC Robertson and author Shirley Bell. Drinks and snacks will be served.
