Darville, Edith H. - A Holiday in Africa. Arthur H. Stockwell, 1950, 1st ? Eileen, an English schoolgirl, and her Mother, have a wonderful holiday with an Uncle on his farm in Tanganyika, Central Africa. Despite many incidents, and visits to strange towns on the journey from England, Eileen found that her real interest was aroused when she settled amongst her Uncle's friends, and children in the neighbourhood introduced her to the life of the community. This absorbing and exciting story paints a vivid and authentic picture of Tanganyika, its people, and their mode of life - their work and recreation, their homes and environment, and the customs of the country. The countryside and the climate, the animal and bird life, and the strange and intriguing surroundings are woven into the tale to complete a work of compelling interest to all readers.

Spine sunned; board edges sunned/foxed; slight edge-wear; edge-foxing; light ednpaper foxing; the odd internal fox spot(s); good, solid copy (no inscriptions, no bumps, not ex-library) no wrapper.
