http://propprealty.com/colorado/?https://propprealty.com/ Africa is a place you have to leave before you realize how much you love it, and then there is no going back, back to the place you knew, that is, because it has changed and so have you.
In ‘Monkeys Up A Tree’ Rosemary Gordon takes you on a journey of her chaotic life growing up in Africa with a mercurial mother. From an early age Rosemary became her mother’s self-appointed guardian and despaired at her scandalous behaviour, her drinking and almost indescribable acceptance of abuse was sad, yet at times parts of the stories are awfully funny.
She and her siblings were separated and abandoned as their mother moved from one man to the next, one drink to the next, discarding the only stable man in their lives, over and over.
She was a paradox in all things, loving one moment and hateful the next. A homemaker and a dismantler of homes, like the female wren, she destroyed the nests made by the male, tossing sticks and suitcases out the window.
From crocodile hunting to a marauding leopard to green chickens to kidnapping to malaria and mayhem the stories are sometimes funny, often heartbreaking and always honest.
