Description

Written by one of science fiction s master storytellers, this award-winning collection of stories tells the haunting and compelling tale of one man s utopia.In twenty-second century Kenya, polluted cities flank the once-sacred Mount Kirinyaga, replacing the great animal herds of distant memory. But Koriba, an educated man of Kikuyu ancestry, knows that life was different for his people centuries ago, and he is determined to recreate it on the planetoid he proudly names Kirinyaga.Reinstating the ancient customs and stringent laws of the Kikuyu people, Koriba leads the colonists as their witch doctor. Only he, unbeknownst to his people, maintains the computer link to the rest of humanity. But the Kirinyaga experiment threatens to collapse, ironically, not from greed or violence, but out of humankind s insatiable desire for knowledge."
