The story of the Kenyan photographer and photojournalist, Mohamed Amin, born in Kenya in 1943, the son of an immigrant from the Punjab who worked for East African Railways.  He became entranced by photography at an early age and had his first pictures published in a national newspaper when he was still at school in Tanganyika.  Mohamed Amin went on to photograph and film many important stories including the Russian involvement in Zanzibar, Idi Aminís coup and brutal dictatorship in Uganda and later the famine in Ethiopia in 1984.  He died in a plane crash following a hijacking in the 1990s.

The author is a professor of journalism at the University of Nairobi who had worked with Mohamed Amin and who has made his own documentary movies in Africa.  His introduction includes some references for further reading.

The Lion Books: Junior Biographies for East Africa series are designed for young adult readers.  They are also suitable for new adult readers reading at an intermediate to advanced level.  They are written by East African academics and journalists and published in Kenya.  In addition to biographies of notable figures in East Africa, both historical and contemporary, they provide an easy to read introduction to the history, politics and culture of the region.

The Teachers' Guide (640-0017) provides extra material and teaching suggestions for several of the Lion Books.
