Summary
This is the story of a shantytown community in South Africa and its efforts to secure a decent life, moving from tin shacks to formal housing, in postapartheid South Africa. The author's 17-year longitudinal study of this community has resulted in an extraordinary work that brings its people alive, through photographs, interviews, and even recipes
