Red Strangers: The White Tribe of Kenya Reviews

    Having been born in Kenya and grown up there for my first 28 years, I was hungry to read this book. The title borrows from Elspeth Huxley's book "Red Strangers", and the book was written by an ex-colonial Briton. I found the book interesting and filled with factual details, although I felt there were important facts missing regarding the final winding down of the British in Kenya. I was touched by the author's confirmation that leaving Kenya was very hard for most of the Europeans. Too many names and details for the average reader, making the book principally academic and filled with research notes, where it lacks in genuine heart connection and emotional content.

    If you have more than a passing interest in Colonial Kenya, this is the best book to answer all the questions. I found it very dry & overly detailed at times, but its the most thoroughly researched & detailed history of this fascinating time I have come across. A must for anyone studying this era.

    This is about the history of whites (mainly europeans) in Kenya, the govoernment, settler farmers, adventurers etc. The reason for giving the book low marks is because it is too anecdotal, there must be hundrends if not thousands of names mentioned thus drowning the reader in minor details that are not continued on at any other place. Had I an easy way to return it, I would in minute.
