5.0 out of 5 stars A Lost Way of Life in a Lost Land, 2 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Out of Africa (Penguin Modern Classics) (Paperback)
This story of a way of life now long gone is, for me, a sad reflection on the way in the world of today, that we cannot seem to accept that the ethnic, relgious and cultural ways of life of other nations are just as valid as those here in the UK. We are all just human beings and all descended from the first species of "homo sapiens". For me, I could not care less what colour or religion people that I meet are. It is about time that some of the so called leaders of our communities, in whichever nation, started behaving towards others in the way that Karen Blixen related to the indigenous peoples she met during her time in Africa, instead of continually trying to tell them that they are wrong and forcing their views on them by force. Recent events in Syria and Burma typify this.
