Description
Find out what happened when the other Bushmen tried to kill him and how they finally managed to get rid of him.

Summary
Tatsie was a rude thick-skinned bushman with very little regard for his fellow tribesmen.

Excerpt
Certain times of the year the “Watersnake” would move far away and the land of the Bushmen would get very dry. During those times the children have to walk long distances to fetch water for the household. The bigger and stronger of the children could carry a whole springbok stomach full of water but the younger ones only two ostrich eggs filled with water. Tatsie was too lazy to go and fetch water, for himself. He would wait for the children to come back and take one of the eggs and drink the water from it. If the child protested or cried he would simply break the egg on the ground and they would get into trouble with their parents. When he was very thirsty or wanted to wash his hands he would grab the springbok “pens” or stomach from one of the bigger children and use all of that water just for himself. If the child protested or tried to run away he would cut a hole in it with his knife and drink from the water pouring out of the hole.
