A vivid picture of the life of a young officer with the King's African Rifles from 1902 to 1906 in Kenya. These diaries present a forthright and outspoken account of events, personalities and policies of the time.

Kermit "Kim" Roosevelt, Jr. (1916 - 2000) was the grandson of President Theodore Roosevelt.
