In 1949, Rosamond Halsey Carr, a young fashion illustrator living in New York City, accompanied her dashing hunter-explorer husband to what was then the Belgian Congo. Her memoir, written in the grand tradition, will transport you to what many consider the most beautiful country in Africa, the “mille collines”. Even more compelling than Isak Dinesen’s Out of Africa, and spanning over half a century, the story of this spirited woman and the people of Rwanda is one you will not forget.

When Rosamund Carr first arrived in Africa, as a new young bride, she had no idea that she would spend the rest of her life there, nearly half a century. While operating a flower plantation Carr fell in love with Rwanda and its people. She met many interesting people, had many great adventures, and had several near death experiences while living in this land of beautiful mountains. Those who enjoy travel, history, biography, women?s studies, or who just want to read about an amazing woman will enjoy this title.
