From the cover: “When Robyn Scott was six years old her parents abruptly exchanged the tranquil pastures of New Zealand for a converted cowshed in the wilds of Botswana. There they set off in the pioneering and unconventional footsteps of Robyn’s eccentric grandfather, who had served as pilot to Seretse Khama, Botswana’s first president. Their three small children, mostly left to amuse themselves, grew up collecting snakes, canoeing with crocodiles and breaking in horses in the veld.
