In 1968, Pat Cavendish O’Neill reluctantly left her magical years in Kenya behind to join her mother in Somerset West, South Africa. She left behind her wonderful friends, a life she loved and, even more heart-breaking, her beloved lioness Tana. However, arriving at her new home on Broadlands Farm, Pat soon found a different channel for her extraordinary gift with animals when she revealed a sharp eye for identifying winning race horses, turning Broadlands into a renowned stud farm.
A Chimpanzee in the Wine Cellar is rich in anecdotes that will make you laugh and cry. With wonderful photographs of the menagerie of animals always so much a part of Pat's life and home.
