Maureen Sneddon-Barnard was driven from Kenya by the Mau Mau. In Rhodesia she farmed again and experienced loss all over again. In a small, brown school case she took her diaries and newspaper clippings that told the story of her life. This, at least, she could leave to her children, telling of the courage, the risks, the endurance, the joys and sorrows. She knew and loved Africa in all its grandeur, but the winds of change were to blow her and her people’s footsteps away.
