Product information

Introduction:

Mukiwa is the gripping story of Peter Godwin's childhood in Rhodesia and his unbreakable lifelong connection to Zimbabwe. The anecdotes of his rural upbringing in Rhodesia in the 1960s are an African adventure story - with life interrupted when Godwin was conscripted into the Rhodesian Army to fight the country's civil war.

Many years after this experience, he returned to Zimbabwe to cover the country's transition to majority rule - circumstances which marked a shift in identity for all Zimbabweans. This book is both a memoir and gripping exposé on the cruelties experienced by the people of Zimbabwe - an unforgettable, award-winning story on the beauty and brutality in this beautiful African land.

“From time to time a book comes out of Africa that is so good it grips American readers by their hearts. This should be one of them.” – The Washington Post Book World

“A fervid blend of My Traitor’s Heart, Dispatches, and Heart of Darkness, Godwin’s account ranks with some of the finest war reportage of this century.” – Kirkus Reviews

Such a fantastic and beautiful book – spanning the writer’s life. Starting with a typical African childhood and moving onto his adventures as a journalist during the war, this book shows this amazing country from two completely different lights.
