A Fish Eagle Calls: Memories of growing up in Malawi 1975 - 1988
Memories of growing up in Malawi between 1975 to 1988.
A collection of over eighty short stories.
When you grew up in Africa as a child like Rupert did, you certainly have a story to tell; whether its swimming in rivers with hippos and crocodiles, climbing central Africa's highest mountain or catching some of the Africa’s most venomous snakes, you’ll read about them all in this book.
After an early childhood in Kenya, followed by thirteen years in Malawi, Rupert has done it all and more. In this book he shares not only stories of his childhood but also his experiences of working in farming communities in Malawi’s “Wild West” on the Mozambique border.
You'll both laugh and cry; and wonder how he is still alive to tell the tale.
"You cannot leave Africa, Africa said.
It is always with you, there inside your head. Our rivers run in currents in the swirl of your thumbprints; our drumbeats counting out your pulse; our coastline the silhouette of your soul.”
Bridget Dore (South African poet)
Over 400 pages, this paperback also contains some beautiful colour photos that will bring back many memories for anyone who has been fortunate enough to call Malawi home.
