Hugh Cran has left his native Scotland to work as a vet in Kenya where he tends to the animals of the local ranchers and the domestic pets of the local community. His daily life is a ceaseless colourful wheel of dawn-to-dusk activity which offers Hugh an insight into the local tribes and the international ex-pat community in equal measure as he copes with rabied dogs to entire herds of sick cattle, and with a surgery fire, near-death on a fishing trip and, despite working 18 hour days, he even finds time to fall in love and start a family. Hugh s witty observations and professional approach, in which he always gives his clients his best, makes this a lively and engaging read about what it is to be a vet at the sharp end and to survive in Kenya."

John Smith became a veterinary surgeon and his professional career largely took place in Northern Rhodesia, where he established the colony's main agricultural research station at Mazabuka, and became head of the veterinary service. He saw the end of company rule and the establishment of the crown colony in 1923 and served in the Legislative and Executive Councils. This book is Smith's account of inter-war life in a crown colony. Social life revolved around the club, and rigid class distinctions ruled relations between officials, professional people and planters. Outside this circle were artisans and miners, some from South Africa, and a few distinguished chiefs, who stood out against the mass of the African population who formed the vast backdrop. These diaries and letters provide a portrait of a close-knit colonial society.

As a newly graduated vet Dr. Reb signed up for a two-year stint with the Peace Corp Volunteers, and found himself in Malawi. A national fuel shortage meant no delivery of supplies, and he had to improvise at every turn. Then he was introduced to a local witch doctor, Dr. Mzimba, and two very sick puppies, Skippy and Bozo. After shaking my hand, Dr. Mzimba took hold of both of my wrists and turned them over so that the palms faced upward. As he studied them, they began to tingle. The Peace Corps had given me extensive crosscultural training, but I didn't recall anything about greetings of this nature. Then he stared into my eyes and while the tingling in my hands began to fade, my cheeks now felt as if an electrical charge was passing through them. Through a smile that filled his face, he said, "I've been waiting a long time for you, Dokotala." So began Dr. Reb's strange and wonderful adventures, where he discovered that in Africa anything can happen and usually does, especially when puppies become your companions in body as well as spirit.
