Out in the Midday Sun. My Kenya.


Elspeth Huxley captivated readers the world over with her memories of an African childhood. In her books she tells of the challenges, the excitement, the tragedies and the joys of those early, dream-filled days when her parents, pioneer farmers in up-country Kenya, settled there immediately before and after the first world war. Here she is again after returning to Kenya after an interval of eight years. This book is a penetrating insight into the country, and a striking perspective of the heyday of colonial Kenya.
