Behind the concrete, plate glass and tubular shelving of the commercial giant into which Frasers Limited has grown today, is the intensely human story of two men who were prepared to risk everything they had on 'one turn of pitch and toss' in a lonely mountainous African chieftaincy over a hundred years ago.
This is the account, first, of how their gamble paid off, less by good fortune than by strength of character and the courage of their convictions, and, second, how their stake was taken up and multiplied many times over by a line of men as robust and fiercely independent as themselves.
