Arriving in Elizabethville, the wide-eyed innocent is attracted to the first dapper young man she meets at a colonial New Year’s ball, and the two are married within months. With mother in tow, the couple joins the Renaud Bros’ family trading store in the wilds of Kasenga, on the banks of the crocodile infested Luapula River. Bringing up a young family with little more than a matted grass shutter between them and the occasional man-eater on the prowl can be a harrowing experience. Not to mention the mosquitoes, soldier ants and other hungry predators … even cannibals! A true life story.Relive the wild old days in the safety of your armchair ... but be sure to get your copy before sundown!
