This is the saga of the turbulent international race for the mastery and development of an immense region, the building of a railway from the east Agrican coast (Mombasa) to Lake Victoria in Uganda, a 600 mile route of waterless desert, scrub country, the Great Rift Valley and a hundred miles of spongelika quagmire all bristling with hostile tribes, lions, tsetse flies and malaria to which countries fell, what was the purpose of this "gigantic folly"? Why was the railway needed and whom would it benefit? it is also the story of the white intruders, the men whose combined avarice, honour and tenacious courage made them a breed apart. Excellent condition.
