"Pat and Mandy Retzlaff lived a hard but satisfying farming life in Zimbabwe. Working all hours of the day on their sprawling ranch and raising three boisterous children, they savored the beauty of the veld and the diverse wildlife that grazed the meadows outside their dining room window. After their children, the couple's true pride and joy were their horses. But in early 2001, the Retzlaffs' lives were thrown into turmoil when armed members of President Robert Mugabe's War Veterans' Association began invading the farmlands owned by white Zimbabweans and violently reclaiming the land"--Dust jacket flap.

It's clear from the start of this book that the author loves Africa very much. If you want to read about a Africa itself and how it is changing (sometimes not for the better) - then I recommend this book. But if you an animal lover - then stay away. **SPOILER ALERT** This is not really a book about the horses at all. Most of the animals the author and her family owned come to gruesome ends. Not a book for horse lovers.
