The Africa House by British journalist and writer Christina Lamb , subtitled The True Story of an English Gentleman and His African Dream, is an account of the life of soldier, pioneer white settler, politician and supporter of African independence Stewart Gore-Browne in relation to the building of his estate Shiwa Ngandu in Northern Rhodesia, now Zambia.
Originating with a chance encounter in 1996 with Gore-Browne's grandson in Lusaka, the book uses Gore-Browne's diaries, letters, personal papers and photographs as well as those of his family, and interviews with family and friends, as its sources. It was published in London in 1999 by Viking Penguin.
The book includes maps and black-and-white photographs.
