Produktbeschreibung

The Eastern regions of Africa are largely unexplored by Westerners. Beneath the desert sands, and lurking within the highlands lie mysteries far older than Western civilization, and indeed mankind. Long before the arrival of Arab traders or European explorers some of the native peoples learned to fear and worship great and terrible beings. Here within the heart of Africa, adventure and horror await those brave or foolhardy enough to seek them out. Secrets of Kenya details the cultures, geography, and history of Kenya through the 1930's; provides an African bestiary; details several secret societies; and includes four adventures to jump start your own explorations of Kenya and the surrounding African wilds.

Introduction -
This is a brief overview of the book highlighting it as potential for a change of pace and scene for the Call of Cthulhu setting, a wild and relatively unexplored country full of dangerous tribes, strange cults, overt mythos activity and predatory animals.

"As Above, So Below"

Short story concerning a great white hunter who hopes to kill a lion while on safari.
