This is where the story begins. The story of a young scientist taking his first-ever flight to Entebbe, Uganda. To the Pearl of Africa. To the unknown. To study elephants.
Through a meticulously maintained diary and hundreds of Kodachrome slides, the author has recreated his two-year life in Uganda during one of the most exciting and peaceful periods in 20th century Ugandan history. Stunning photographs, maps, descriptions of work and safari life in the Kibale Forest, along with details about domestic life in Fort Portal will transport the reader back in time to a place where nature's beauty, African independence, and British imperialism coexisted.
