Garden of My Ancestors
Sex, drugs and gardening. That's the spirit of Garden of My Ancestors, a story about a family farm set in the wild and misty reaches of Limpopo province. The farm belongs to an infamous family whose ancestors settled here more than a century ago. This is no tedious or anguished account of stoic, hard-nosed colonials, however. This is the tale of a wild and wonderful family, an African tale where white mischief meets magic realism. Set in an incredible garden against ancient mountains that change everyday, Garden of My Ancestors is sad, tragic, funny and philosophical - and an evocative testament to the healing powers of gardening.
