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

Book Description:

The award-winning memoir of a white boy growing up in Rhodesia as it went through a bloody transition to majority rule
