Returning from his 31 years as a Methodist missionary in Zambia, Merfyn Temple tries to settle down into a quiet pastoral ministry in Oxfordshire. But his impulsive energy and charisma soon find other causes to follow and wrongs to right. From his efforts to sail to the Falklands at the height of the war, to his cycle ride through Africa to promote organic agriculture, Merfyn sweeps us all into his passion for justice. At the age of 83 his journey to Harare and deliver a personal letter to President Mugabe, ends him in the city jail for a few days. Liberally illustrated with photographs and newspaper cuttings, Merfyn's story is an example and a challenge to every armchair activist.
