Dealer Notes
Thesiger first visited Kenya in 1960, eventually making his home with the Samburu people in Maralal; this is a record of Thesiger's long relationship with the land and its people; a powerful evocation of spectacular landscapes, wildlife and a vanishing tribal heritage. Includes material on Lake Turkana, Marsabit and other remote areas in the region of the former Northern Frontier District; much on wildlife and his experiences leading anti-poaching patrols as a Game Warden; material on nomadic tribes; on the Rendille and Turkana and a closely-observed account of the initiation ceremonies of the Samburu moran.
