My Cattle Look Thin is a story about a farm in Africa. In 2000, David Wilding-Davies travelled with his young family from Canada to Zimbabwe to start a new life farming coffee. On their farm, Ashanti Coffee Estate, they learnt not just how to grow coffee but acquired insights into the people and turbulent history of Zimbabwe. As a new arrival to a small farming community, David had to navigate through the complexities of race, politics, and religious beliefs that both bound the people of Zimbabwe together and pulled them apart. The small herd of cattle on the farm came to reflect the fortunes of the farm and of the country, as it descended into chaos under the murderous regime of Robert Mugabe.
