Praise

“What is it about these untamable men that makes them so alluring? . . . In Finch Hatton, [Sara] Wheeler has found the archetypal wanderer forced to straddle multiple worlds. He embodies the contradictions of the early modern age and, in some ways still, of ours.”—New York Times Book Review

“A fascinating portrait of . . . a singularly romantic life.”—Vogue

“Highly recommended . . . Wheeler’s striking descriptions of East Africa, including Kenya and the Rift Valley, create a rich sense of place and time.”—Library Journal

“Wheeler’s fascinating, witty bio reveals her wonderful eye for telling details.”—Entertainment Weekly
