The Flame Trees of Thika by Elspeth Huxley

Beautifully written, The Flame Trees of Thika is a classic story portraying the European settlement of Africa (specifically Kenya) during the early part of the twentieth century. Interesting memoir told through the the insights of a child growing up as a European in Africa. Interesting insight to some of the different native cultures and tribes of Africa.
