African Adventures by Mereo Books
by Robert Lawton
A young agriculturist’s experiences working in pre-independence Basutoland
In 1960, a youthful Robert Lawton left agricultural college with a passion for farming and a desire to see the world and find out how agriculture was done in other parts of the globe. The opportunity came two years later, when he was offered one of the first graduate opportunities ever arranged through the then brand new Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO) scheme. His destination was Basutoland, in Southern Africa. In this book, Robert Lawton tells the colourful and entertaining story of what happened when he got there.
