Bush Lessons

 

bl23-year-old Shrewsbury graduate Ruth Charlton went to teach in one of the most remote bush schools in the Limpopo Province of South Africa for three months – but stayed for twelve. Her vividly written diaries and letters home chronicle a year of her class’s progress and her own journey from the naivety of an innocent abroad to a woman drawn into the complexities of modern South Africa.
