Synopses & Reviews
At the age of twenty-five, Kuki Gallman, divorced and badly injured in a devastating car accident, left Italy to convalesce in Africa with the man who would become her second husband. Enchanted by the land, they established a vast ranch on the Laikipia plateau in Kenya. But Africa's splendor came with a price. Filled with pain and joy, beauty and drama, Gallman's haunting memoir "captures perfectly the magic of Kenya" (The New York TImes Book Review).
Gallmann gives the enthralling story of a woman's life in Africa, the story of a powerful romance and paralyzing sorrow, and of Africa itself--a land of passionate beauty haunted by mystery and danger. of photos, 8 in color.
