This is a true African tale of persistence and tenacity.
The story of a farmer and pilot raised in colonial Kenya who went on to play an active role in Mozambican politics whilst leading Lonrho’s foreign investment in that country.
This unique memoir describes life during Mozambique’s transition from communism to democracy, from poverty to an investor’s choice. It has been a life creating farms, gold mining and operating hotels through war and peace. Then supporting peasant farmers and developing the conservation of a private tropical island.
It is proof that nothing is impossible and Africa offers opportunity to those who persist. It is a personal record of the changes in modern Africa and Mozambique in particular an investor’s destination. It should also be an enjoyable read.
