Gordon Poultney - Personal History

 Last updated : June 19, 2003

Even before I read Peter Godwin's book, Mukiwa, I had in mind to write the story of my life in Rhodesia and what has transpired since then. Having read Mukiwa, which is really the quintessential story of many a white child's life in Rhodesia, I am even more inspired to record my own tales. At the beginning of each section listed below I will state the basic facts of that time and then, as time permits, lower down each page I will recount the stories and anecdotes of those time periods. I hope that you will visit frequently and enjoy these with me.
