I LOVED every page of this book and didn't want it to end. I have read many travelogues and this was by far my favourite. I enjoyed Dot's candid style of writing and she covered so many aspects of her journey such as local history, culture, cuisine , fashion ,wildlife, architecture but most of all I loved Dot's vivid descriptions of the African landscapes and the various characters that she encountered on her fascinating journey home to beautiful Zimbabwe. I look forward to the next book! (from Amazon.co.uk)
