One of them was a huge Matabele. He had lost his helmet and his head was round and black as a cannon ball, his open mouth was a pink cave lined with ivory teeth, and his bull bellow rose above even that storm of gunfire.

At the dawn of a new century, the pioneers of Rhodesia have staked their claims and stocked their farms in the land they have carved as their own.

AFRICA LURED THE LUST IN MEN'S HEARTS...
On a continent of breathtaking beauty and bitter suffering, two vastly different cultures clashed, mingled, and recoiled. Here, amidst mist-shrouded mountains and gold-studded plateaus, ancient tribesmen lived close to the earth, as white men dug fortunes out from beneath them and laid plans for a new civilization.

THE VIOLENCE IN THEIR SOULS...

AND THEIR APPETITE FOR REVENGE.

"An epic...Smith joins the ranks of one of the grand masters of twentieth-century novels."
