Once Upon a White Man - war and peace in Rhodesia and Zimbabwe. “This is a world class book. What we have here is a memoir of a wise and moderate man, who did his best to save Rhodesia from self-destruction, and tried to earn a decent living in the resulting Zimbabwe. The author's attention to detail is as good as that of any bestselling autobiography. He remembers things that both racists and leftists would rather forget - the culture of humiliation and violence that made Rhodesia unsustainable, and the ugly silence of world opinion that made it possible for Mugabe to get away with genocide and ethnic cleansing. Even though I've never been to Africa, this book tore me from my political views and made me think seriously about the goals of humanity." (Avery Morrow, Japan, Aug 2011)

    "Reader feedback:" “Graham, I have just finished reading the last page of your book. I have to tell you I really enjoyed the whole experience - I have read one or two other books about our common past and I was left craving another approach. You nailed it on the head. Thank you for all the effort you made to put down your story and share it with us” – Tom, Malta “We had “book-club” last night... Claire read the last pages out aloud to us, and the four African ladies could not keep the tears from flowing, it was just superb. Claire said she has never cried so much in her life... – Wendy, Perth “I laughed and cried a lot… so many memories” – Pam, Goulburn NSW “Makorokoto for a job well done. I could comment at length on your insights and how well you’ve put them into words, but I’ll leave it as a simple ‘thank you’ – I thoroughly enjoyed it and still have a tear in my eye as I type” – Brian, Darwin " did a superb job of capturing the essence of how things... More > were" - Sean, Toronto, Canada "Such a good summary of what us whites went through ... The way you described certain things – like the Zambezi and your own garden, the bush, trees and birds brought a tear to my eye I must admit – spot on – there really is something so special about these things that only us Rhodies can appreciate. I’ll be flicking back to page number 1 to start it again! I even learnt one or two things that I didn’t even know about my own country which moved me. Thanks so much for sharing your story" - Brendan, Sydney “This is an important story – not just as an eyewitness account of recent events in Rhodesia and Zimbabwe, but also because it will touch the hearts of many who read it” – Louis, Perth< Less
