Hugh Cran has left his native Scotland to work as a vet in Kenya where he tends to the animals of the local ranchers and the domestic pets of the local community. His daily life is a ceaseless colourful wheel of dawn-to-dusk activity which offers Hugh an insight into the local tribes and the international ex-pat community in equal measure as he copes with rabied dogs to entire herds of sick cattle, and with a surgery fire, near-death on a fishing trip and, despite working 18 hour days, he even finds time to fall in love and start a family. Hugh s witty observations and professional approach, in which he always gives his clients his best, makes this a lively and engaging read about what it is to be a vet at the sharp end and to survive in Kenya."
