“An astonishingly written story of growing up in modern-day Africa with loving, eccentric and adventure loving parents. Every character in this book could fill a novel.”
— Lillian Kinsey, Bohannons' Books With a Past, Georgetown, KY

Winter 2011 Reading Group List

“Scott tells the loving yet unsentimental story of her unusual family and her experiences growing up in the African bush. Her parents moved their family to Botswana when she was seven. Her father was a doctor and a pilot who flew to his cases, and her free-spirited mother home-schooled their three children -- in a manner of speaking. Scott is a gifted storyteller who endears her family to the reader, while chronicling the changing times in Africa.”
— Jan Healy, Eagle Harbor Book Company, Bainbridge Island, WA


A glorious new voice on Africa, Robyn Scott's adventures growing up in Botswana in a loving but eccentric family will be one of the season's most talked-about memoirs.
