Something Of Value by Robert Ruark

This is the pile-driving story of the crushing of the Mau Mau revolt in Africa. It is big and explosive. It is a vivid portrait of primitive savagery, of barbaric rituals and torture, of manhunts, of fear and hatred and loyalty, of love in an inferno.

Something Of Value, a novel based on actual and recent events, is the basis for the M-G-M motion picture starring Rock Hudson and Dana Wynter.

After spending time in Africa on safari, Ruark’s experiences gave him enough insight to write this and another novel, Uhuru, both set during the Mau Mau rebellion. Now, almost 70 years later, the Mau Mau rebellion is once again in the news.
