Being raised in Kenya in the 1950's, when it was still a British colony allows for an unusual and interesting upbringing. The author’s family lived up country in places where there was no electricity or refrigeration. In the early days his father used to go out to the plains to shoot a buck for the pot. There in lies the source for the name of this collection of highly original poems. The era saw the decline of colonial control at the zenith of its influence and the poems give a unique perspective on life in the country at that time. Once you spread your wings in Africa there was no going back to the soft life. Dr. Neil McLeod, has deftly captured this unique, lost civilization, by sharing his unbounded childhood curiosity and joy, as only an accomplished bard might. The universal emotions he captures in his poetry, course, like swift clear trout streams off Mount Kenya’s flanks.
