It's 1965, you've just fulfilled a boyhood ambition and graduated from the vet college in Glasgow. The very next week you find yourself in Kenya, treating wild animals. This is what happened to Dr. Jerry Haigh, who in Wrestling with Rhinos takes us deep into the post-independence Kenya of the mid-sixties. Haigh's reminiscences are peppered with observations, sometimes hilarious, sometimes scurrilous, on the social scene in Kenya, but it is his experiences working with the wild and unfamiliar African animals that make this such a captivating read. With photos.
