In 2008, Zimbabwe is a particularly dangerous place.
Author: Diana M. Hawkins
Category: Biography & Autobiography
In 2008, Zimbabwe is a particularly dangerous place. Corruption, violence, rape, murder, and inhuman levels of greed and brutality ruled the land as lawless gangs of murderers battled for power. Pieter van Rooyen, a commercial farmer turned environmentalist, has felt the terror firsthand. Seven years earlier, his family was brutally murdered and his farm seized during Zimbabwe's violent land-distribution scheme. The experience changed his life and priorities; now he has dedicated his life to honoring life. He joins forces with Jessica Brennan, an American wildlife biologist, to protect Zimbabwe's most threatened treasures, the elephants, which are being slaughtered by poachers and corrupt government officials alike-under the guise of conservation. Jessica is conducting a scientific study of Zimbabwe's elephants, studying herds that roam the eastern Zambezi Valley. There, she witnesses many of the daily threats they face, including habitat encroachment, floods, droughts, government mismanagement of wildlife areas, and slaughter by illegal ivory hunters. Jessica and Piet are joined by his former neighbor, Angus McLaren, another dispossessed farmer who narrowly escaped with his life when his farm was stolen by the so-called veterans of the independence war. Together, the trio wins over the local National Park Service chief, Hector Kaminjolo, and professional hunter Blair Nisbet, who step in to champion their cause. Despite the terror and sadness that surrounds them, Jessica and Pieter are reminded of the best of human nature as they discover love. Against a backdrop of kidnappings, murders, and international intrigue, a healing love story emerges, proving that love truly can conquer all.

This book tells the story of an adventurer, hunter and naturalist in late nineteenth-century Africa, who would inspire novelists such as Rider Haggard and Wilbur Smith. The book describes Selous’ extraordinary adventures, from elephant-hunting, and diamond-prospecting, to an early expedition to found Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) in the European scramble for Africa. The book also examines Selous’ relationships with other influential people of the time, including Robert Baden-Powell, Frederick Russell Burnham, Cecil Rhodes, King Lobengula of the Ndebele, and American President Teddy Roosevelt. In Big Game Hunter Norman Etherington paints a skilful portrait of a complex man who started as an elephant hunter but who eventually founded some of the first game reserves in Africa and was acclaimed by both the National History Museum and the Royal Geographical Society for his collections and discoveries. Selous, who was killed by a German sniper bullet in Tanganyika in the First World War, was one of the world’s great adventurers.

This was the time of the Belgian Congo debacle where ethnic cleansing coincided with Steve's first police posting near the Northern Rhodesia border with the Congo, at the age of 21. He graphically describes being knifed, ambushed, stoned, wounded by bow and arrow and shotgun and had his hand broken several times. He saved the life of President Kaunda from a potential assassination attempt and acted as a driver and bodyguard to President Tsombe of the breakaway state of Katanga. Steve was solely responsible for exposing and tracking down a dangerous British Army deserter and communist spy working in the Congo and Northern Rhodesia (Zambia), seeing him neutralised and his operation disbanded. Throughout the book, he gives full credit to his African police colleagues for their immense courage, humour, loyalty and total dedication. The book will standout because it depicts unique, true stories of dealing with witchcraft murders and cannibalism in all its repugnant forms. Steve, personally thwarted an ambush on a group of famous Congo mercenaries known as the Wild Geese. He describes incidents of black magic, kidnapping, arson, gunrunning and people trafficking. He successfully detected the first computer fraud in the territory, and later for the first time, brought back a European fugitive in a series of fraud cases to face justice, from the atrocious apartheid country of South Africa; of being given a government award for his part in combatting the slaughter of wildlife and in taking part in the search for the downed aircraft of the United Nations Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjöld still the subject of much controversy today. Steve's life was saved several times by his courageous Doberman, Alex regarded as a witch doctor by local tribes. This is the true, action-packed, unadulterated stories of those frantic and dangerous years, where a young police inspector found himself confronted by fearsome actions and events well beyond his complete understanding while serving in the elite police force in Northern Rhodesia now Zambia, which was then a British Protectorate prior to independence. Steve has strived not to duplicate any of these true stories, which provides an indication of just how involved and energises his dedicated years of service really were. Nevertheless, he pushed on regardless, with the realisation that he was doing an important and necessary job for the benefit of the unprivileged peoples of the country; yet the police were fighting on two fronts, trying to protect the vulnerable citizens and at the same time endeavouring to stop the slaughter of the country's wildlife.

'Fans of Alexander McCall Smith will love Scotty Elliott's Sibanda series' Sunday Times (SA) Detective Sibanda and Sergeant Ncube are back! Two bodies are discovered near Gubu, one burning at the base of a tree struck by lightning and, on the banks of the Zambezi, a second killing which threatens to tear Detective Sibanda's life apart. The victims are not connected as one is a foreign wildlife researcher and the other a local driver, but Sibanda's intuition tells him the murders are linked. The only clues are a fragment of material found in the brain of one victim, a puncture wound in the thigh of the other, and a diary full of coded names. As the men investigate further, they find links to an ivory smuggling gang and in their pursuit of the killer, Sibanda and Ncube not only have to cope with their temperamental Landrover, their chief inspector's lack of cooperation, but a rough and remote landscape full of wild and dangerous adventure.

Officially commissioned to explore the Zambesi river for mineral deposits and opportunities for trade, David Livingstone left England in 1858. He discovered a land whose sharp contrast between human misery and natural beauty left him bewitched. Outraged by the racial injustice that he encountered during his eight-year stay in what is now Zimbabwe, Livingstone wrote this fascinating travelogue in collaboration with his brother Charles, who had also been part of the expedition, in a refreshingly contemporary style.

This study about David Livingstone is different from all other publications about him. Here, Livingstone is not the main topic of interest; the focus of the author is on nutrition and health in pre-colonial Africa and Livingstone is his key informant. David Livingstone and the Myth of African Poverty and Disease is an unusual book. After a close examination of Livingstone’s writings and comparative reading of contemporary authors, Sjoerd Rijpma has been able to draw cautious conclusions about the relatively favourable conditions of health and nutrition in southern and central Africa during the pre-colonial period. His findings shed new light on the medical history of Sub-Saharan Africa.

Author: Mrs Eileen Marguerite Henwick
It's October 1948. Northern Rhodesia. Having displeased his superiors, colonial officer James Lancaster is sent to Feira in the sweltering Zambezi valley, where he's to replace the outgoing District Commissioner, Barnaby Drayton. He's been warned to keep his reports dull and unexceptional if he habours any hope for a better posting. There seems little chance of that: he arrives on the day Drayton's wife dies and he finds the tiny community riven with suspicions and hate. The thermometer keeps rising, the rains hold off, tempers flare. Father Bravachko and the clinic nurse say Elizabeth Drayton died of natural causes. The drums, muttering in the hot and humid nights, speak of a witchdoctor's revenge. Or is there a cold-blooded murderer on this remote and isolated station?
