The House That Stood Still free pdf An epic true story about a Punjabi Muslim man, Seth Ibrahim Karimbux, whose strong determination to provide a stable and secure future for his family, compels him to seek it in Kenya, British East Africa. The story unfolds in Punjab, India in 1896 when Ibrahim Karimbux leaves his homeland, unbeknown to his family. With a few rupees in his pocket, he embarks by dhow for Mombasa and befriends some Indian traders shortly after his arrival. Ibrahim struggles to find means to support himself and finally succeeds, only to find himself in debt later. Eventually he joins a party of men heading for Nairobi, in hope of securing a small business for himself. Travelling by foot, they endure harsh realities of the African wilderness. Nairobi in 1897, was a bleak, swampy land devoid of habitation, although the pastoral Maasai used it as a watering ground for their cows. Abundant wild animals roamed everywhere and apart from only a handful of Indian traders living there, it did not have much to offer. Follow Ibrahims' quest as he attempts to build a future in Kenya, the land that eventually became his home and to the generations that followed.

About Shailla Matlock Karimbux

I am the fourth generation of the Karimbux family. As a young child I had a strong urge to write about my family. Not only were they heroes in my mind, but were also truly dedicated to Kenya, and contributed tremendously to the country and the community. I am a kindergarten headmistress by profession but lately have been enjoying my other passions of painting and making handmade soaps and aromatherapy products. The House that Stood Still is my first book and it has been a sheer joy writing it and I hope that you enjoy it just as much.
