Call Of The Litany Bird : Surviving the Zimbabwe Bush War, Hardback Book

Call Of The Litany Bird : Surviving the Zimbabwe Bush War Hardback

Hardback

Description

As a trained nurse, newly married to the son of the Governor of Rhodesia during the UDI years, Susan writes compellingly about bringing up a family on their farm in Matabeleland in the midst of the unfolding terror and growing number of atrocities. Above all it is a human story. Sometimes shocking and always moving, there is also warmth and humour as Susan creates a gripping picture of the conflict and tells of her family's survival when many of her friends and neighbouring farmers didn't. The book is a testament to the courage displayed by so many people who were tested day after day by almost unimaginable horrors. The Litany Bird is the popular name of the Nightjar, a largely nocturnal bird found throughout southern Africa.

Its haunting call sounds like 'Good Lord, Deliver Us.'
