The Adventures of Mekatilili

by Elizabeth Orchardson-Mazrui

This book is based on the heroic story of Mekatilili wa Menza, famous for fighting against the British colonialists. It is an imaginary story interwoven with interesting historical facts which happened among the Mijikenda of the Coastal region of Kenya. What makes the main character Mekatilili outstanding? What makes her so strikingly similar to the legendary heroine of Mijikenda history? This well written story will no doubt answer these questions; and the fast pace of the story enhances its gripping mood.
