Tales of Zambia
is a fascinating compilation of 86 stories, detailing many characters, events and mysteries which have played a part in making Zambia the captivating and vibrant country it is today. Covering such topics as the death of Dr Livingstone, the naval war on Lake Tanganyika, how Katanga was lost and the legend of the Kongamato , Tales of Zambia
creates a vivid picture of the history and culture of this great nation. Also featuring stories of Zambia’s national monuments and museums, the origins of the mining industry and Copperbelt and the beginnings of the capital city, Lusaka, Tales of Zambia
is not to be missed. Dick Hobson, the author, lived in Zambia for twenty years. From 1978 until 1994 he was Honorary Secretary first to the Zambia Society and later to The Zambia Society Trust; until 1999, he also compiled and edited News from Zambia, which has enabled so many friends of Zambia in the UK and around the world to stay in touch with developments there.
In his introduction to this book, Dick wrote: "It is my tribute to the many happy years that my family and I spent there, and, I hope, the means of giving something back." Sadly, Dick died in 2002.
