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).


Baker & Taylor
In an eloquent story of romance, sorrow, and Africa, Gallman reveals how her indomitable courage and unending love for Africa helped her overcome the numerous tragedies she suffered on the dark continent

A very well-written memoir. Her life was certainly interesting enough to merit a book!
