Each River is unique, winding a course through a valley of its own making.

But at a confluence rivers meet, each taking on the strength of the other as they join forces and head towards the sea.

Confluence tells the story of Piers Cruickshanks and Siseko Ntondini, two men from different backgrounds who formed an unlikely partnership and together embarked on an inspiring journey. Characterised by candour, humour and thoughtful reflection, this book charts the growth of a surprising friendship in the pursuit of a shared goal against tough odds.

Piers Cruickshanks is an English teacher and Director of Academics at Kingsmead College in Johannesburg.

His achievements in the sport of canoeing have taken him to some seldom-seen corners of South Africa as well as to many competitions nationally and internationally. Confluence is the story of a dream that came true and also the embodiment of another – Piers’ first published book.
