Under an African Sky - Zimbabwe, a small window into a very different world.  

Barbara and Gerard Courtin, part of our extended White Squall family, visited a long-time friend from Sudbury who had recently returned to live in Zimbabwe, the country of their birthplace.  Under an African Sky is partly a travelogue and partly an attempt to convey the complexities and beauty, both in terms of landscape and fauna, of a fascinating part of the Dark Continent.
