Reprint. This translation originally published: London: Putnam, 1937.

In 1914 Karen Blixen arrived in Kenya with her husband to run a coffee farm.

Instantly drawn to the land, she spent her happiest years there until the plantation failed.

Karen Blixen was forced to return to Denmark in 1931 and it was there that she wrote this classic account of her experiences.

A poignant farewell to her beloved farm, Out of Africa describes her strong friendships with the people of her area, her affection for the landscape and animals, and great love for the adventurer Denys Finch-Hatton. Written with astonishing clarity and an unsentimental intelligence, Out of Africa portrays a way of life that has disappeared for ever.
