From the moment Karen Blixen arrived in Kenya in 1914 to manage a
coffee plantation, her heart belonged to Africa. Drawn to the
intense colours and ravishing landscapes, Karen Blixen spent her
happiest years on the farm and her experiences and friendships with
the people around her are vividly recalled in these memoirs. Out of
Africa is the story of a remarkable and unconventional woman and of
a way of life that has vanished for ever.
