Description: Sir Laurens van der Post's extraordinary life has encompassed expeditions in Africa, years as a Japanese POW during World War II, service with Lord Mountbatten in Indonesia, and extensive worldwide travel. Combining these rich experiences with the myriad influences on his thinking -- which range from Carl Jung, with whom he shared a close friendship, to the African Bushmen, whose culture he has studied and admired, to Zen Buddhism -- van der Post has produced this profound memoir.

Sir Laurens selectively recalls events in his life -- some joyful, some tragic -- and, in revealing the connections between them, provides the framework for an exploration into the human spirit, the ills that torment it, and the forces that keep it alive. The "Blady" of the title -- a horse discovered plowing a field in Provence who becomes a Grand Prix jumper -- serves as a perfect symbol of van der Post's belief in the power and the coherence of life's seemingly random events.
