Hendry is the bestselling author of A Year in the Wild and Back to the Bush.

About the book

South Africa – 1976 to 1994

A time of turbulence as the struggle against apartheid reaches its zenith, pushing South Africa to the brink. But for a one small boy in the leafy northern suburbs of Johannesburg … his beloved housekeeper is serving fish fingers for lunch.

This is the tale of Hamish Charles Sutherland Fraser – chorister, horse rider, schoolboy actor and, in his dreams, 1st XV rugby star and young ladies’ delight. A boy who climbs trees in the spring and who loves a girl named Reggie.

An odd child growing up in a conflicted, scary, beautiful society.

A young South African who hasn’t learnt the rules.
