Curse of Urumbu (Prins)

SKU 9780888158079


Jack Westerbaan is a Dutch immigrant to Australia. His father’s execution by the Germans during World War II put a severe strain on Jack’s faith. While in Australia, working as a cowhand, he abandons his faith.

He decides to retrace his roots, but first he wants to cross the continent once more and visit places he’s never seen before.

On his journey he kills a wallaby, not knowing he has thereby violated an aboriginal taboo. The tribe’s witch doctor pronounces a curse on Jack and the hunt is on.

The story is fast-moving and exciting. Jack’s flight lands him in one predicament after another.

Yet this is not action pure and simple; the story is laced with vivid, graphic descriptions of the fascinating Australian landscape.

  • Piet Prins (pen name for Pieter Jongeling 1909-1985) was one of the most popular Dutch authors of children books. Already as a child the desire to become an author was fuelled by the books of Lawrence Penning. For many years he was the editor of a Reformed Christian daily newspaper, in which he wrote most of his children’s books as serials under the name Piet Prins. The stories are usually full of tension and suspense yet they are always hemmed in by the inspired Word of God. Mr. Jongeling, better known as Piet Prins, lived a life for the honour and glory of God’s Name, a fact which penetrates all of his writing.
