Rich descriptors establish this memoir’s compelling setting so that readers feel the African heat , the desperation of starving families seeking sustenance from dry, barren farmland, and the wind’s power to help a helpless community. Against this backdrop a small, young boy with an insatiable appetite for knowledge lets curiosity drive his desire to help his family and his village. This is practically a how-to manual for young readers wanting to solve a problem for the greater good. The triumph of grit and determination over naysayers and unceasing obstacles results in hope for generations. Joyfully inspirational.
Publisher Summary
After his African village was hit by a drought, 14-year-old William Kamkwamba learned about electrical windmills at a small library, and after weeks of foraging for junk parts, he did the incredible. Full color.
