Publisher's Summary

Danish countess Karen Blixen, known as Isak Dinesen, ran a coffee plantation in Kenya in the years when Africa remained a romantic and formidable continent to most Europeans. Out of Africa is her account of her life there, with stories of her respectful relationships with the Masai, Kikuyu, and Somali natives who work on her land; the European friends who visit her; and the imposing permanence of the wild, high land itself. Stage and television actress Julie Harris delivers a reading that is emotionally charged and reflective, recreating Dinesen's lively appreciation for the land she loved so much.

earthy and sensual

It's a love story of Africa. Once I realized that it was this rather than an affair, I could relax and enjoy the story.
The narrator was quite good.
