The Kipsigis Talai: Tragedy, Tribulation and Triumph of a Community in Kenya
Gapman Publications ISBN 978-9966-117-09-0.  In English
This book, The Kipsigis Talai examines the emergence of the Talai clan among the Kipsigis and looks at their activities before the coming of the Europeans, their resistance to European colonization and the aftermath. Under the leadership of the Chief Orkoiyot Kipchomber araap Koilegen, the interests of the Kipsigis and the British were heavily at odds. Through the leadership of the Talai, the Kipsigis, just like the Nandi, vigorously resisted the occupation of their country by the British. Their initial resistance in the early period of colonial rule led to three main Talai leaders namely Arap Koilegen, Kibuigut araap Sing’oei and Araap Boisio being banished to Central Kenya in 1914.
