Join author Robyn Scott for a fascinating discussion of her childhood in Botswana. Her new book, Twenty Chickens for a Saddle, recounts her adventures after her family moved to Botswana when she was seven. Her funny, moving memoir, told with clear-eyed unsentimental affection, is about an idyllic childhood and a family's enthusiasm for each other and the world around them, with the essence of Africa - both beautiful and challenging - infusing every page.
