Red StrangersBook - 1939
Red Strangers tells of the coming of the British (the Red Strangers) to East Africa in the late 1800s. Following the lives of three generations of a Kikuyu family, Huxley's magical tale immerses the reader in the language, world view and perceptions of a people whose way of life is changed forever through their encounter with the British. First published in 1952, Red Strangers describes pre-colonial village life in fascinating detail and relates the personal agony and hope brought about by change and interaction with the wider world.
