Celebrate Freedom Day with the ultimate South African story
Confluence tells the uplifting true story of the Dusi Canoe Marathon partnership of Piers Cruickshanks and Siseko Ntondini.
Cruickshanks was a seasoned paddler who had won multiple gold medals in the Dusi, while Ntondini, a paddler who had come up through the ranks of the Soweto Canoe Club, dreamt of winning gold.
The two men agree to paddle together and start training towards their gold-medal goal, but in order to get to the start line they needed to overcome cultural and physical challenges to create a winning combination.
The book will be released at the same time as Beyond the River, a movie based loosely on their story – in cinemas from 28 April.
