Red Strangers

Elspeth Huxley



A novel of Kikuyu tribal life in Kenya, as the nineteenth century led into the twentieth, when the African pattern of existence was still largely unchanged. At the start a child glimpses a column of painted warriors setting out to raid for cattle; at the finish, a baby girl is christened Aeroplane to mark her father’s first flight. Hardback in red cloth, eighth impression, pp406.


VG (occasionally foxed throughout, otherwise very clean, several top corners turned; cloth bright and clean) in dustjacket – uncommon in itself! – which is torn at the head of spine/top front; bottom back edge, and several small chips; generally a little grubby, but complete.

Chatto & Windus, 1964.
