I Dreamed of Africa
by Kuki Gallman
- 315 PAGES
Enormously popular, this bestseller is a highly personal account of tragedy and magic in Kenya, as much catharsis as literature. Italian-born Gallman tells of her move to Ol Ari Nyiro, a ranch set in the highland plain in the shadow of Mount Kenya. Although Gallman loses both her husband and eldest son to terrible accidents in Africa, she perseveres -- and her childhood love of Africa grows stronger. Wistful and romantic, this is nonetheless a powerful book, vivid in its detail of life in Africa. It is now a major motion picture (and re-released with a new cover).
