Editorial Reviews

"Munya Skutti is the life story of a small Fanagalo speaking white child growing up on a tobacco, maize and citrus farm, established by her parents at Exwick, Rhodesia. A place on the African continent with dangerous, large and beautiful animals, plants and insects. You'll laugh, and be sad, as events are revealed about their daily lives and those of the local people with whom they built a mutual respect during those in an era of adventure seldom experienced by people today. The story leads to the tragic consequences of political change surrounding the emergence of Zimbabwe. This is a page turning account you'll not want to put down until you find out what happens next."- Dianna Blesing"This is a deeply personal story giving life to the memories of a childhood spent on a farm in Rhodesia in the 1950s and 1960s and before the independence and birth of Zimbabwe. Robin presents various stories in this book with humour and an engaging narrative that brings the reader on a journey to fully experience her world. We are drawn into her life and are fascinated by her observations of the challenges faced by farmers, cultural differences experienced by Europeans in Africa and their co-existence with the land and wildlife. This was a truly enjoyable read and I highly recommend this book."- Nadia Holloway"As Robin takes one along her journey through an idyllic childhood on an African farm, she expresses a deep love for the country of her birth. The people she meets and the animals she encounters are all bound up in this unique adventure. It is a wonderful and fascinating read."- Jean-Pierre Capotorto.
