The Trek and Other Stories

by Lawrence Hoba

Much has been said over the last decade about the forcible eviction of the white farmers in Zimbabwe, less about the plight of the farm-workers, while the voice of the new settlers, and militia manipulated for a cause, has remained virtually unheard. This short but powerful anthology, The Trek and Other Stories, provides sensitive and illuminating, wry and comic perspectives on those people who occupied the land believing their future was golden, only for it to crumble in front of their faces.
