'The setting is Africa: the eastern slope of Mount Kilimanjaro, the wide cool highlands of Kenya, the white sand coast of the Indian Ocean. The three parts of this book are not interdependent; each tells the story of distinct individuals, the ex-Colonialists, the settler, the tourist. Yet the parts belong together as a whole, bound by variations on a powerful theme: intense involvement with Africans which transform these lives.' Kept in print as an Eland paperback, a high mark of distinction, this is the surprisingly uncommon first edition.
