Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

Join Maria in her bittersweet telling of a South African woman’s coming of age: Of dawn patrols as a child with her Oupa (grandpa) for rogue lion in the bush veldt; of mischievous boarding school life with its insatiable prankishness; of a hitchhiking tour in cold war Europe, sweet romance, political intrigue and tragedy. Then, back again in Africa, caught in the horror of the Congolese uprising and thence to America.

Irina Semakova

Easy to read story of South Africa in 20th century through life of girl, teen, woman and her family, but the end is a bit plain...


D.W.St.John

A wonderful story of the author's childhood in South Africa.
