Overview

In this book, the author of Seven Gothic Tales gives a true account of her life on her plantation in Kenya. She tells with classic simplicity of the ways of the country and the natives: of the beauty of the Ngong Hills and coffee trees in blossom: of her guests, from the Prince of Wales to Knudsen, the old charcoal burner, who visited her: of primitive festivals: of big game that were her near neighbors - lions, rhinos, elephants, zebras, buffaloes - and of Lulu, the little gazelle who came to live with her, unbelievably ladylike and beautiful.
