Summary

I have just killed myself. I meant it to be quick, but when I came to stick the poison arrow into the vein in my arm, I couldn't, and the arrow tip went into the thickest part of my leg instead. Maybe, inside my head, I wanted a little more time. To think. So I am sitting here under the thin shade of a thorn tree and thinking about my life and the things that were me - Be, of the Ju/'hoansi people. Be's story is one of sadness, but it is also a story of love, courage and dignity. It is told masterfully by Lesley Beake, award-winning novelist for young people.
