About this Item: Weidenfeld & Nicholson, New York, 1987. Hardcover. Pelizzoli, Francesca (illustrator). First edition. Sewn binding. Paper over boards. 287, [1] p. Illustrations [some in color]. From Wikipedia: "Elspeth Joscelin Huxley CBE (nee Grant; 23 July 1907 10 January 1997) was a polymath, writer, journalist, broadcaster, magistrate, environmentalist, farmer, and government advisor. She wrote 30 books; but she is best known for her lyrical books The Flame Trees of Thika and The Mottled Lizard which were based on her experiences growing up in a coffee farm in Colonial Kenya. Her husband, Gervas Huxley, was a grandson of Thomas Huxley and a cousin of Aldous Huxley. Nellie and Major Josceline Grant, Elspeth Grant's parents, arrived in Thika in what was then British East Africa in 1912, when she was 5 years old, to start a life as coffee farmers and colonial settlers. Flame Trees.explores how unprepared for rustic life the early British settlers really were. Elspeth was educated at a whites only school in Nairobi. She left Africa in 1925, earning a degree in agriculture at Reading University in England and studying at Cornell University in upstate New York. Elspeth returned to Africa periodically, becoming the Assistant Press Officer to the Empire Marketing Board in 1929. She married Gervas Huxley, the son of the doctor Henry Huxley (1865 1946) in 1931. They had one son, Charles, who was born in February 1944. She resigned her post in 1932 and traveled widely. During this period, she published her first works including Lord Delamere and the making of Kenya a biography of the famous settler. In 1948 The Sorcerer's Apprentice A Journey through Africa was published. She was appointed an independent member of the Advisory Commission for the Review of the Constitution of the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland (the Monckton Commission). An advocate of colonialism early in life, she later called for independence for African countries. In the 1960s, she served as a correspondent for the National Review magazine. Huxley's Red Strangers was republished by Penguin Books in 1999 and by Penguin Classics in 2000; Richard Dawkins played an important role in getting the book to be republished, and he wrote a preface to the new edition. However, as of 2006, Red Strangers was once again out of print. This work describes life among the Kikuyu of Kenya around the time of arrival of the first European settlers. There is a biography by Christine S. Nicholls, Elspeth Huxley: A Biography (Harper Collins, 2002). Huxley was a friend of Joy Adamson, the author of Born Free, and is mentioned in the biography of Joy and George Adamson entitled The Great Safari. Elspeth Huxley wrote the foreword to Joy's autobiography The Searching Spirit. Huxley died in a nursing home at age 89 on 10 January 1997 at Tetbury in Gloucestershire, England." From an on-line posting: "Francesca Pelizzoli is a published author and an illustrator of children's books and young adult books. Some of the published credits of Francesca Pelizzoli include Shota and the Star Quilt, Miracle Maker." Plot summary from an on-line posting: "Elspeth and her unconventional parents decide to settle down in Kenya and begin a coffee plantation. This is a time of discovery for Elspeth, as she encounters the incredible beauty and cruelty of nature, and new friendships with both Africans and British expatriates. A side plot involves the beautiful and bored British Lettice Palmer who enters into an affair with a handsome safari guide. Eventually, however, the excitement of Elspeth's life is disrupted by the onset of WW I, and the changes it brings." Very good in fair dust jacket. DJ has some wear, tears, and soiling.

About this Item: Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. New York: William Morrow, 1959. First edition, A fine copy in orange cloth with white spine lettering, square and tight, in a near-fine pictorial dustwrapper with slight loss of material at the spine ends and a little edgewear along the top front panel. In the tradition of other great British travel writers, Huxley has created a mesmerizing recreation of her life growing up on a coffee plantation in Kenya in a witty and energetic description of life among the Kikuyus, wild animals, and the vicissitudes of African agriculture. This book was immensely popular when it first appeared and was made into a widely-admired television series in Britain and the United States. Orville Prescott said in the New York Times: "An entrancing book, the best-written and most appealing book about Africa since Isak Dinesen's Out of Africa.". Seller Inventory # 009506
