A Cure for Serpents


The Duke of Pirajno arrived in North Africa in 1924.

For the next eighteen years his experiences as a doctor in Libya, Eritrea, Ethiopia, and Somaliland, provided him with opportunities and experiences rarely given to a European.

He brings us stories of noble chieftains and celebrated courtesans, of Berber princes and Tuareg entertainers, of giant elephants and a lioness who fell in love with the author.
