Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Flame Trees Of Thika: Memories of an African Childhood (Vintage Classics) (Kindle Edition)
I remember when this book was published quite a lolng time ago that I made a mental note to read it but it just didn't happen. A recent conversation with fellow-travellers on a train persuaded me to track a copy down. It proved really worthwile and I enjoyed every bit of it. Elspeth Huxley's account of her childhood in Africa when white settlers were acquiring land they had little idea what to do with and their relationships with each other, the native Africans is both interesting and enjoyable.
