Man of Bees

Footprint Press has acquired the South African rights of two outstanding books published in Zimbabwe. These are Man of Bees and Athena’s Vengeance.



The first part of Man of Bees, written by Alex Morris-Eyton under a nom de plume, is about the bush war. Not since Wild Geese has a writer from Zimbabwe produced such a balanced account of this conflict –  what it was like to be a guerrilla, living in the bush like a wild animal, and how young Rhodesian men felt being called up to fight a war in which the numbers were stacked against them.
