Isak Dinesen takes up the absorbing story of her life in Kenya begun in the unforgettable "Out of Africa", which she published under the name of Karen Blixen. With warmth and humanity these four stories illuminate her love both for the African people, their dignity and traditions, and for the beauty and wildness of the landscape. The first three were written in the 1950s and the last, 'Echoes from the Hills', was written especially for this volume in the summer of 1960 when the author was in her seventies. In all, they provide a moving final chapter to her African reminiscences.
