FROM UNDER A MANGO TREE
by Alan Fagan
Retelling true events in this absorbing novel Alan Fagan, brings to life the harsh days of trekking with wagons and oxen, through to the era of harnessing the turbulent Zambezi River into the massive Kariba Dam in Rhodesia (Zimbabwe). With great empathy and understanding of the culture and community life of the intervening years, history is told by Jan as he grows from childhood experiencing the hardships and joys of life, death, love and loyalty.
Central to this tale, taken from the ‘library of memories’ which had been passed down to the author, is the love and companionship of Jan’s dogs, Tonko, Shaka and Spike.
Written with compassion, evocative descriptions of the countryside and authentic characterisations, ‘From Under a Mango Tree’ is an enthralling, honest, exciting, and often very emotional historical novel.
