Meer oor die boek

They were pioneers who went to the colonies and later became regarded as settlers on disputed land. Uhuru, wars of liberation, decolonisation and terror drove many of them away. Maureen Sneddon-Barnard was one of these people. She was driven from Kenya by the Mau Mau. In Rhodesia she farmed again and experienced loss all over again. After Rhodesia had become Zimbabwe, she received the dreaded eviction notice that forced farmers all over the country off their land. In a small, brown school case she took with her diaries and newspaper clippings that told the story of her life. This, at least, she could leave to her children, telling of the courage, the risks, the endurance, the joys and sorrows. She knew and loved Africa in all its grandeur, but the winds of change were to blow her and her people’s footsteps away.
