Summary
"Christina Lamb uncovered the saga told in House of Stone while travelling back and forth to report clandestinely on Zimbabwe. Her narrative traces the history of the brutal Rhodesian civil war, independence, the hope then despair of the Mugabe years, through the lives of two people she met who find themselves on opposing sides. Although born within a few miles of each other, their experience growing up could not have been more different. While Nigel played cricket for his country and piloted his own plane under Victoria Falls Bridge, Aqui grew up in a mud-and-pole hut, sleeping on the floor with her brothers and sisters. 'They had cars and went shopping in South Africa. We didn't have food and had to walk an hour each way to fetch water, ' she remembers." "House of Stone ('dzimba dza mabwe' or 'Zimbabwe' in Shona words) is based on a series of interviews with a white farmer and black nanny, set against the backdrop of the last of Britain's colonies in Africa to become independent, and the descent into madness of one of Africa's most respected nationalist leaders."--BOOK JACKET
