The Freemen of Meru

Nelson, Anton



The appropriation of WaMeru land by the colonial government of Tanganyika for White Settlement, and the story of the passive resistance of the Wameru and their final victory in regaining their land.

Chris Nelson says: Anton Nelson was my father and wrote this account of his experiences with the Meru tribe 1952-1962. The book has excellent historic photographs, including some of Kirilo Japhet whom you already list in your booklist.
