Description

An Englishman returns to Africa after nearly forty years in a bid to recapture his carefree colonial childhood. Through a chance meeting with a street child in Victoria Falls Town, his life becomes entwined with that of a one-time child slave and cattle herd who's on a mission to revisit his own early life on the other side of the racial divide. As this remarkable Zimbabwean tells his tale of poverty and struggle, first under colonial rule, then through the bush war and the turbulent Mugabe years, old ghosts are laid and the writer finally reconnects with the land of his childhood – not through the places he knew, but through the people he didn't. A moving story of nostalgia, race, reconciliation and God's power to transform the most desperate of lives, set against the background of two brutal regimes – racist Rhodesia and Mugabe's Zimbabwe.
