9780140238464: African Nights

Continuing the book "I Dreamed of Africa", this volume is written in episodes and covers Kuki's life over the last ten to 12 years. She refers glancingly to the deaths of her husband and son, covering family issues, the conservation and preservation of the animals around her, the fear and beauty of being lost in the bush at night, a king cobra who visits the tree planted over Emanuele's grave and, in the eyes of the local Pokot women, therefore brings evidence that Emanuele's spirit is at peace, an encounter with a baby rhino and a new man in Kuki's life.

Review:

Captures perfectly the magic of Kenya, creating an almost overwhelming picture of beauty and drama, pain and joy, death and resurrection . . . Her discovery of African culture, with its mystery and danger, is recounted in spare, lyrical prose. ( New York Times)

Powerful, poetic, unbearably moving: I wept (Clare Francis (on 'I Dreamed of Africa')
