    Kindle Edition Ú Red Strangers Kindle º strangers download, Red Strangers PDF Red Strangers is the story of a Kikuyu village set at the time when the first European colonisers arrived in Kenya and the changes that came with colonialism In beautiful exuisite prose Elspeth Huxley describes the ways of the Kikuyu the pastures where young boys are herding the goats of their fathers the sacred fig trees whose roots grow down from heaven instead of up from earth and the majestic peak of Kerinyagga Mount Kenya High and remote the peak floated in the clean air above them guarded from the impudent feet of men by many spirits Above on the far white crest where no man could venture was the seat of God There he dwelt sending rain or withholding it according to his pleasure Sometimes when he prepar

    Kindle Edition Ú Red Strangers Kindle º strangers download, Red Strangers PDFI loved the fiction look into pre colonial Kikuyu life I especially loved the point of view from which the story is told that of the Kikuyu evident in the title of the book Red Strangers As opposed to the regular depictions of how strange pre colonial Africa was to the European Huxley shows just how strange and utterly incomprehensible dare I say senseless the Europeans and their ways were It made me reconsider a lot of what today is taken for granted and as matter of fact in the way we run our worlds especially the inherited colonial ways in which we run the worlds of African nations A passage I liked that shows the idiocy of a prison system in dealing with wrongs from pg 202 The affair of the young man's death is between Karue and my father Waseru What has the stranger to do with it That is stranger's l

    Kindle Edition Ú Red Strangers Kindle º strangers download, Red Strangers PDFIt's amazing the way you'll find yourself identifying with the most bizarre things Huxley hurls us into a world so foreign and primitive that initially one can't help but chuckle at the practices we're witness to But by immersing us in the culture so completely our affiliation with it grows to a point where when the Europeans

    Kindle Edition Ú Red Strangers Kindle º strangers download, Red Strangers PDFMore a fictional anthropological study of the Kikuyu at the time of contact with Western civilization than it is a story of human beings Huxley is always a wonder on landscape but she's better with non fiction Read The Flame Trees of Thika and The Mottled Lizard instead

    Kindle Edition Ú Red Strangers Kindle º strangers download, Red Strangers PDFThis is such a tragic book And I was so torn while reading it mostly for conflicting ideas revolving around the pros and cons of issues such as science and technology as well as cultural relativism If these are topics that interest you then Red Strangers is

    Kindle Edition Ú Red Strangers Kindle º strangers download, Red Strangers PDFIt’s funny that I picked up this book because I had been reading a lot of Sci Fi and felt as though I should take a break In a similar fashion to many Sci Fi novels this story is of a first contact situation and how that contact indelibly changes those involved The author does an excellent job of immersing the reader in the lifestyle and customs of the Kikuyu people The introduction of Europeans into their world is viewed through Kikuyu eyes and with only their interpretation of what the ‘Red Strangers’ motivations could possibly be It is a fascinating world to experience with these men; one foot in the ‘past’ while another is stepping into a new and uncertain future

    Kindle Edition Ú Red Strangers Kindle º strangers download, Red Strangers PDFVery interesting fictional account of the profound effects the first Europeans had on the culture and lifestyle of the Kikuyu people of Kenya In the foreword the author states that she wanted to write this book in 1939 while there were still some people living who could remember the way of life before the white man came I have read several of Huxley's autobiographical works about her life in Kenya and feel that she probably got a lot of this right
