Item description for Kikuyu District by Paul Sullivan...

Francis Hall was a Victorian man of the British empire who sailed from England to Mombassa in 1892 to work for the Imperial British East African Company.

Reviews - What do customers think about Kikuyu District?

A true adventure story from Kenya  Oct 4, 2007
This is a very readable story of one of the earliest settlers in Kenya. Francis Hall was a district commissioner who lived in Kikuyuland from 1892 -1901 when he died of blackwater fever in his wife's arms at the age of 40. He was an educated man and wrote a letter home every month to his father in England. The book consists of these edited letters which paint a very early picture of his adventurous life in Kenya. Francis Hall was attacked by a rhino and mauled by a leopard which he strangled to death. On leave in England he met his assistant's sister Beatrice and they married on his next leave. Back in Kikuyuland Hall tried to keep the peace between the Kikuyu and the Maasai and when the railway arrived on his doorstep he was moved into the heart of Kikuyuland. This is one of the earliest written accounts of pioneer life in Kenya. It is an adventure story, a love story and a true story. I am the editor.
