Stuart Cloete was a best-selling author who lived an extraordinary life across several countries. He was born in France to a Scottish mother and South African father, he fought for England in World War 1 and later settled in South Africa where he died in 1976.

His first novel, Turning Wheels, published in 1937, went on to sell two million copies despite being banned in South Africa. It scandalised the authorities with its commentary on the Great Trek and a mixed race relationship.
