The Rain Goddess

£29.99

Product description

This title is an explosive novel set in the highly volatile area of Senga on the North-Eastern border of Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) in the mid 1960s and early 1970s. The powerful dram erupts as the British South Africa Police, later joined by the Rhodesian Army and supported by the Air Force, struggle against communist backed guerrillas who use violence and torture to intimidate tribesmen to follow their cause. They fight to restore peace - a peace that is governed as much by force of arms as by the tribesmens' faith in the uncanny predictions of their tribal spirit medium who communes with the spirit of the rain goddess.

Condition: Cover creased, some pages bent. Minor foxing to foreedge.
