Home Gear Store NHA Recommended Reading Mukiwa

Mukiwa, A White Boy in Africa

An unsentimental tale of coming-of-age in Rhodesia in the 1960s in three parts: boyhood, the war and post-independence. A participant on the losing side in the savage civil war, Godwin flees the country, returning after independence as a journalist and supporter of black Zimbabwe. Mukiwa provides a rare perspective on the consequences of colonialism.

Author: Peter Godwin

NHA Staff Recommendation:
"A great read about a boy growing up during troubled times in Rhodesia soon to become Zimbabwe. The book was published in 1996 so does not include much of the problems that have befallen the country during Mugabe’s rule but it’s a well written, compelling story and gives great background on how the country navigated its path from colony to independence."- Greg Courter
