In an open cart Elspeth Huxley set off with her parents to travel to Thika in Kenya. Growing up in Kenya in the early twentieth century, the brothers Matu and Muthegi are raised according to customs that, they are told, have existed since the beginning of the world. As pioneering settlers, they built a house of grass, ate off a damask cloth spread over packing cases, and discovered-the hard way-the world of the African. But when the 'red' strangers come, sunburned Europeans who seek to colonize their homeland, the lives of the two Kikuyu tribesmen begin to change in dramatic new ways.
