Sheba Slept Here

A novel by

Right after World War II, a large part of the territory belonging to Ethiopia was declared a Reserved Area, under U.N. mandate until its ownership could be formally decided, and supervised by the British. Alan Caillou, still in the British Army after serving in North Africa, found himself appointed its Police Commissioner. He became responsible for supervising law and order in a territory including a desert plain, mountains, two small towns, and a railroad line whose boundaries were defined as about 300 miles long and 20 feet wide. Sheba Slept Here is the warm and amusing account of his two years there. With affection and understanding, Alan Caillou evokes the charm of this strange land, and its sometimes-strange customs.
