". Like Rhodesia’s paternalist prime minister, Ian Smith, Selby justifies the defunct country’s defiant white-minority rule on the basis that black Africans were too “inexperienced” to govern themselves without “essential training” by their white overlords."
-BlueInk Review

Synopsis

One man's extraordinary adventure that lasted from the heydays of the nineteen fifties through the sixties, when the “winds of change” blew across the continent of Africa, through the seventies and the Rhodesian War, during which he served as a police reservist, then to the dying moments of that wonderful country he called home.
