It is 1897, during the last few years of Victoria's reign at the height of the Empire, a period marred by unrest in Africa, and the Kenya Colony is an exciting world of hate, passion, loyalty and violence. Stories abound about the wild nature of the railroad line - shaky wooden trestle bridges over enormous chasms, man-eating lions pulling railway workers out of carriages at night - and back home the British Parliament is upset that construction of what the Africans call the Iron Snake will never return the enormous investment. The tabloid term, 'Lunatic Express,' seemed to fit.
Join the brave, spirited Alice McConnell, the Honorable Geoffrey Brian Scofield Stanford, and a host of other fascinating, passionate characters as they witness Africa's first steps into the modern era, and in the process, the transformation of their own lives.
