Description
DZOKUTI IN THE BUSH
Ursula D'ivry

In refreshing contrast to many present day books on Africa, Dzokuti in the Bush has a vividly Rhodesian background that is for once unconcerned with politics.


The scene is set in a small outpost where civilisation is no longer remote, but has not yet entirely permeated. The small community, vividly, and at times, humorously drawn, entertain themselves (as they will the reader) with parties, gymkhanas and flirtations. Ursula d'Ivry is a young Rhodesian who spent a year in a small outpost where her husband was stationed with the B.S.A. police before he left the Civil Service to become a tobacco farmer. This is her first book.


She has drawn largely from her own experience; the descriptions of African witchcraft given en passant are authentic. Underlying the humour of outpost frivolities is a sincere love of the Rhodesian countryside-the bundu, with the dry heat of early spring, when picannin goatherds play in the white dust and lizards bask in the sun-and the thunderous rise of rivers when the rains come and tree frogs call from dripping branches. The atmosphere of the bush is delightfully expressed in the chapter decorations which are also the work of the author.


Hardback, good condition
