MY KENYA DAYS
Hunter Books
"SN30077" Harper Collins, London 1994, first edition, 224 pages, profusely illustrated with spectacular B & W photographs. When he first came to Kenya in 1960, Thesiger made a series of long journeys on foot with camels to Lake Turkana, Marsabit and other remote areas, drawn by the lure of what was formerly Kenya's Northern Frontier District, its varied wildlife and distinctive, nomadic tribes. In Tanzania, he climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and traversed the Maasai country with donkeys. Later, as an honorary Game Warden, he led anti-poaching patrols in Kenya. The companionship of tribesmen in their traditional setting has played an essential part in all Thesiger's travels: Rendille warriors dancing by moonlight; Turkana in pursuit of buffalo; and a closely observed account of Samburu moran during their initiation ceremonies. A fascinating book by the great explorer. Dust jacket and book are Very Fine.  ID#: 3499
