I Dreamed of Africa
I Dreamed of Africa
by Kuki Gallmann
Edition: Paperback

6 of 9 people found the following review helpful
4.0 out of 5 stars An emotional tale of African dreams, 7 Feb. 2005
This review is from: I Dreamed of Africa (Paperback)
I read this book cover to cover in two days. Kuki Gallmann is an admirable woman, who made great sacrifices to fullfill her childhood dream of living in Africa. The book details an important period in Kenya's history, when private landowners began to take on board the responsibility they had towards their land and the people and animals which occupied it. Kuki captures her own personal sense of responsibility very poetically, as well as detailing meetings with known Kenyan figures like Richard Leakey, who are involved with conservation to this day. I would definitely encourage anyone with a fascination with East Africa to read this book, it stays with you for sometime.
