Product description

Product Description

When Ann and Ziggy Patras uproot from England in 1980 and head off with their three young children to live and work in deepest Africa, they have no idea what they are letting themselves in for.
While prepared for sunshine and storms 13º south of the equator, the Patras family are ill-equipped for much else.
Interspersed with snippets from Ann’s letters home, this crazy story describes encounters ranging from lizards to lions, servants to shopping shortages, and cockroaches to curfews.

About the Author

Ann Patras was born and raised in Burton upon Trent in the English Midlands. Ann's life was always crammed with people, originally through her family's busy corner shop, then at her parents' pub and later through her own varied careers. After raising three kids, countless dogs and living in Africa for over thirty years, Ann and Ziggy, almost 40 years married, now live in Andalucia, Spain and have absolutely no intention of ever moving again.
