| TOTALLY DELIGHTFUL
Sometimes you watch a bit of something, and you just KNOW you're seeing something special.

I first saw this series around 20 years ago as a weekly mini-series on PBS. The wonderful story, great acting, beautiful scenery and haunting music has stayed with me. When I saw the video at our local library I was happy to renew my acquainenance with Elspeth and her family in Kenya. The story plays just as well 20 years later.

Thanks to all who had a part in "The Flame Trees of Thika" for giving us such a gift.
