Found myself really swept along by this book it just had a bit of everything really. So beautifully written Shear's description of his own trip through Zimbabwe searching for clues and traces of a long dead relative made me feel that I was back in Zim myself. A really interesting and different story. Wasn't your typical book about Rhodesia/Zimbabwe by any means. But then again, Shear's relative wan't your typical clergyman let alone Rhodesian settler.
