Krotoa, a feisty, bright, young 11 year old girl is removed from
her close-knit Khoi tribe to serve Jan van Riebeeck, her uncle's
trading partner. She is brought into the first Fort established by
the Dutch East India Company in 1652. There she grows into a
visionary young woman who assimilates the Dutch language and
culture so well that she rises to become an influential interpreter
for van Riebeeck who became the first Governor of the Cape Colony.
As such Krotoa ends up being rejected by her own Khoi people and
destroyed by the Dutch when she tries to find the middle way
between the two cultures.
