THE HORNS: PART ONE of the ZAMBEZI TRILOGY - brings to life the early history of Matabeleland and Southern Rhodesia through the increasingly divergent paths of four childhood friends. Jabu son of an eminent Ndebele Chief; Themba discovering his Tswana past as a slave to the Ndebele; Prune, his mother dying in childbirth and his adoption by the clinic nurse and orderly; Carol daughter of a Native Commissioner in Nyamandhlovu - all of them living in the heartland of Matebele history.

Extensive historical research, with appendices from Colonial archives to the hunt for King Lobengula’s grave and the words of the Unilateral Declaration of Independence from Britain in November 1965, underpin the fact and the fiction in the lives of these four characters as they move into adulthood.

This first book in the Zambezi Trilogy, THE HORNS, covers the period from 1840 to early 1966.
