This is a highly entertaining memoir of a somewhat colourful character dispatching husbands, lovers, murderers, and maniacs in various ways and shooting a rapist in the groin, surviving to the age of ninety-one to write the story of her familys arrival in Rhodesia and their survival through a terrorist war. In 1980 Rhodesia became Zimbabwe, and the total collapse of the economy began. By the year 2000, most of the Europeans, including all her family, had died or left the country, and Rose was alone in her house with a pistol for protection, fighting off intruders best she could, finally leaving Zimbabwe to live in Australia with her daughters. Taking what she could fit in her car and the maximum holiday allowance, she skipped the country for good. Stripped of all her lifes savings in Zimbabwe by the collapse of the economy, she considers herself lucky to be alive to tell the tale. The details of some of those encounters are extremely funny.
