Continuing the book "I Dreamed of Africa", this volume is written in episodes and covers Kuki's life over the last ten to 12 years. She refers glancingly to the deaths of her husband and son, covering family issues, the conservation and preservation of the animals around her, the fear and beauty of being lost in the bush at night, a king cobra who visits the tree planted over Emanuele's grave and, in the eyes of the local Pokot women, therefore brings evidence that Emanuele's spirit is at peace, an encounter with a baby rhino and a new man in Kuki's life.

Kuki Gallmann, author of the autobiographical I Dreamed of Africa, continues her memoirs of events, people and life in Kenya, short true stories about the Gallmann family, her husband Paolo, son Emmanuel and daughter Sveva. Each chapter is remarkable in itself for the characters, animals and way of life she describes. (Kirkus UK)
