Preamble

This online edition of my father’s book “The Southern Kikuyu before 1903” is being released following the increasing number of requests for the second edition which I published in 2007. My intention is to put returns from this version towards a further hard copy paper-back edition in future. Many people have indicated their wish for a “proper” book for their library and this is my plan going forward. The three volumes remain an incredible and authentic record. That so many have demonstrated their real thirst for the information would have pleased my father and his age mates enormously and it makes the volumes
even more worthwhile.
This is the first online, unabridged Edition
