This book contains nine stories portraying aspects of life in Kenya, from the early pioneering days to the game reserves of today. Included is the story of how the lion rose from being mere vermin to the King of the Beasts, and then became a household pet. The book also tells of the spread of Christianity in Kenya, the constitution of the railway to Uganda and the country's general expansion and development. The stories were written because the author felt that they were worthy of record in a world where recent history is being fast forgotten and sometimes deliberately distorted.

Well-written and taken from a wide variety of sources, there stories will appeal to all those who enjoy discovering new facts about a country's history, as well as those who appreciate stories that are well told . . . a most fascinating book that is well worth reading.
