9780006383925: My Kenya Days

Following on from the author's autobiography, "The Life of My Choice", this book provides a record of Thesiger's 30 years in Kenya. Since his first visit to Kenya in 1960, Thesiger has 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 Nothern Frontier District, with its varied wildlife and distinctive nomadic tribes, Thesiger spent many years as an Honorary Game Warden leading anti-poaching patrols. He describes Kenya's northern tribes - Rendille warriors dancing by moolight, Turkana in pursuit of buffalo and an account of Samburu moran during their initiation ceremonies.

From the Back Cover:

Wilfred Thesiger is one of this century’s greatest travellers and explorers. His books 'Arabian Sands' and 'The Marsh Arabs' have been hailed as classics of modern travel writing. This latest work, which follows on from his bestselling autobiography, 'The Life of My Choice', provides a compelling record of Thesiger’s thirty years in Kenya.

Lavishly illustrated by his magnificent photographs, this book contains superb evocations of Kenya’s vanishing tribal heritage, of the dramatic landscapes of Thesiger’s Kenya journeys, and intimately portrays his Samburu companions and surroundings at Maralal, where he has made his home.

“In 'My Kenya Days' admirers of Thesiger will find something quite new and rather startling”
ROGER CLARK, 'Daily Telegraph'

“A touching, elegiac book”
OBSERVER

“Absorbing reading … One really can taste, smell and see the living Africa”
IRISH TIMES

“More than a sum of its parts: it reads as a threnody for a world we have lost and which will never be recreated”
ANTHONY DANIELS, 'Sunday Telegraph'

“A book worth pondering deeply”
FRANK MCLYNN, 'Guardian'
