In Central Kenya there was a village called Kiria-ini. The inhabitants- all happy, pleasure-seeking people-were faithful to the customs of the tribe and content with their way of life. That is, until a brutal tribal war brought disintegration, new values, or no values at all. As such, the terrible, dark days followed. In this stirring new book Joseph Njoroge Wanjohi presents an unforgettable story based on his personal experiences growing up in Kenya and watching inter-tribal warfare destroy all that he cherished. Fast-paced, historical, and unflinchingly graphic and straightforward, Wanjohi's work takes readers on a journey to a land where the unity, love, and civility of a people quickly become distant memories in the intense struggle for survival.
