A KENYAN JOURNEY

95 pages

softcover approx 21cm x 15cm - no inscriptions - photographs

from back-cover:
When Peter Hooper writes, 'There is a village in Africa where I am known and will always be sure of a welcome', he sets the scene for this evocative account of his meeting with a young Kenyan, Julius Kitivi. After sponsoring Juluis' secondary education, Peter Hooper went to Kenya to meet his 'chosen son'.
Among the highlights of their journeys together is a visit to Julius' home village, Ndalani, where Hooper meets the Kitivi family. There, Julius' father asks him, 'Peter' if the sea dried up, how long would it take me to walk to New Zealand?

SHADE OF THE MUGUMO TREE raises issues regarding individual sponsorship, third world education and expectation. It is also a colourful and perceptive account of modern Kenya by an acclaimed New Zealand writer.
