Description: In 1826, a twelve-foot giraffe, that had been captured in the Sudan, shipped down the Nile, and carried across the Mediterranean in a ship's hold, was walking across France. A gift from Mohammed Ali, the most powerful man in Africa, this "beautiful stranger" would become an object of adoration in France. But in this compelling, beautifully rendered book, Michael Allin looks beyond the fairy tale to reveal the complex web of politics, culture, religion and greed that fueled the phenomenon of the giraffe called "Zarafa."
