1/10/1997     Elspeth Huxley's Flame Trees of Thika
On this day in 1997 Elspeth Huxley died. Huxley married into the famous family name, but she had her own success with a lifetime of journalism and some thirty books in many genres. One of these was the best-seller, The Flame Trees of Thika, about growing up in Kenya on "a bit of El Dorado my father had been fortunate enough to buy in the bar of the Norfolk hotel from a man wearing an Old Etonian tie."
