Over seventy years their combined efforts and pioneering zeal have transformed virgin bush into lush and profitable farmland. Upon the sprawling estate rests the family's security, its' fortunes, its' very future. It is all they have, all they have ever known, their very lifeblood is in their lands and their African homeland. Must they fight to maintain and retain it..?

A widely respected and beloved statesman, dying from a Carcinoma, with the question of succession hanging over the family and the fledgling nation.
