This is the story of a young woman’s first encounters with rural South Africa. Coming from the allmodcons society of Britain at the beginning of the 1980’s, the author is literally transplanted to a farm in the foothills of the Drakensberg mountains in what is now Kwazulu Natal.
Once there, she finds her feet in the ways of Africa
with the help of a charming, elderly Dutch couple,
an appealing but wily African farm hand, his practical and motherly daughter and a wise and fascinating neighbour who has a fund of local knowledge.
These are tales of a different kind of life, which
include living without electricity, handmilking cows, drought, veld fires and madcap adventures into the unknown.
They are stories told with deep affection and respect, and above all a liberal dose of tongueincheek humour....
