9780060977238: Mukiwa: a White Boy in Africa

Peter Godwin grew up in Rhodesia in the 1960s, dimly aware of the divisions that would lead to civil war. This book tells of the guerilla killings, Godwin's conscription into the army aged 17, and his return to Zimbabwe as a reporter for the "Sunday Times" after studying law in England.

From the Publisher:

Vivid and frightening memoir of growing up in Africa
Growing up in Rhodesia in the 1960s, Peter Godwin inhabited a magical and frightening world of leopard-hunting, lepers, witch doctors, snakes and forest fires. But as an adolescent, a conscripted boy-soldier caught in the middle of a vicious civil war, and then as an adult who returned to Zimbabwe as a journalist to cover the bloody transition to majority black rule, he discovered a land stalked by death and danger. "A classic" Sunday Telegraph; "Speaking as a former 'white boy in Africa' myself, I can both testify to and applaud the book's authenticity and Godwin's miraculous recall" William Boyd, Sunday Times; "His memoir of those terrible years is a vividly scary adventure story, as well as a poignant portrait of a bitter moral dilemma" Graham Lord, Daily Telegraph
