Growing up in Rhodesia in the 1960s, Peter Godwin inhabited a frightening world of leopard-hunting, witch doctors and forest fires. As an adolescent, a conscript caught in the middle of civil war, and as an adult who returned to Zimbabwe as a journalist to cover the bloody transition to majority rule, Godwin discovered a land stalked by death and danger.
