5.0 out of 5 stars This is the best book I've seen about Kenya's former Northern Frontier District ... 28 Mar. 2015
By D. Robinson - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is the best book I've seen about Kenya's former Northern Frontier District (NFD). It was obviously a labor of love by the author. It is well-written and has numerous illustrations, many of them in color. It's a shame that the title is not more indicative of the contents.

5.0 out of 5 stars African Exploration 2 July 2009
By J. Swikart - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Monty Brown did a great job chronicling the exploits of some of the first Europeans to explore Kenya and some of the surrounding areas of east Africa. The book has been out of print for quite some time but it is still worth picking up if you are interested in African colonial history. Gun enthusiasts will especially enjoy Brown's account of the initial use of Mannlicher rifles by hunters and explorers in Africa. It looks great on a coffee table and is good reading to boot!
