Which chapter are you referring to?

oh sorry chapter 13


cry the beloved country

Could you quote me a line from the chapter? I don't have the book but perhaps I can find it with a quote.

"through hills lovely beyond any singing of it" does that help?

cry the beloved country

This is actually from chapter 4, not chapter 13. The line goes, "There is a lovely road that runs from Ixopo into the hills. These hills are grass-covered and rolling, and they are lovely beyond any singing of it." He is really just describing the wonder of the hills above one of the " fairest valleys of Africa." Paton writes about how the beauty is beyond description, beyond even a song or poetry can describe.

oh thanks : )
