Overview
This collection of stories, rooted in truth and legend, from a forgotten time in South Africa’s past, the Forties, and a little-known part, the Lowveld, is a window into a magical time when people were uncluttered by philosophical baggage and worked for one purpose: to make a living to enjoy life.

“An enchanting collection of Lowveld tales, packed with eccentric characters, bush lore and African magic. Wilf
Nussey’s considerable talent as a raconteur has produced a great read, filled with humour and charm.”
Jo-Anne Richards, bestselling author of The Innocence of Roast Chicken, Touching the Lighthouse, My Brother’s Book and The Imagined Child

Wilf Nussey

Wilf Nussey spent much of his youth in the Lowveld. He was a full-time journalist for forty years, all but four in Africa, most as a foreign correspondent, first for British newspapers during the Mau Mau conflict, later as reporter and for thirteen years editor with the Argus Africa News Service, created by the Argus Group to bring Africa news to South African readers.

His assignments took him to many corners of Africa and frequently into conflicts, although he dismisses the appellation ‘war correspondent’ as flamboyant. He specialized in southern Africa while directing reporters in several bureaux in East, West and Central Africa, being particularly close to events in Mozambique and Angola. After retiring, he returned to the Lowveld to spin his tales from his favourite corner of Africa. He now lives in the Cape and writes books.
