Item Description: Chatto & Windus, London, 1982. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Seventh Impression. Dust jacket complete except price clipped. Brown cloth boards with bright gilt titling on spine. No ownership marks. Frontis. 288 pages clean and tight. The Flame Trees of Thika was a Book Society Choice, a major Book Club Choice, and became a successful TV series. Elspeth Huxley's novels have revealed for many thousands of readers the heart of Africa. In this book she describes her own childhood there, amongst the Kikuyu, during the years just before the First World War. With her valiant mother and her hopeful, gullible, kindly father, she trekked out to make a home in the Kenyan wilderness. They built a grass house, they ate off packing-cases spread with damask tablecloths, they learnt how to train oxen and grow coffee and understand something of the African mind. Amongst their neighbours were an Edinburgh nurse married to an absentee elephant poacher, a tough Boer farmer, the vivacious and unconventional Lettice and her stiff ex-cavalry husband. There are ant-hordes, leopard-hunts, cattle-thefts: the witchcraft of the Kikuyu and the love-affairs of their white neighbours are equally mysterious to the child. Intent on her own affairs yet absorbing much of the savage and beautiful world around her, running wild and growing in wisdom, she lived the pioneer childhood which she writes about so evocatively. `No one who cares about the fate of Africa can possibly be ignorant of Mrs. Huxley's distinguished role as an observer and interpreter of African events . From the evocative title to the last sentence I found myself held and entranced by this tale at times so tender, endearing and poignant and at others so light, carefree and gay.' LAURENS VAN DER POST. '.a valuable historical document as well as a delightful piece of autobiography.' SIR CHARLES PETRIE. Size: 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # 133983
