Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lovers of fine travel- and adventure-writing will welcome this first paperback edition of Mike Tidwell's richly acclaimed The Ponds of Kalambayi. Tidwell had no clue what awaited him when he headed off to the remote corners of Zaire as a fresh-faced Peace Corps volunteer. His task was to help the local people raise tilapia fish in ponds they would dig themselves - with only their own muscle-power to help them. By turns hilarious and wrenching, The Ponds of Kalambayi is a masterful account of culture clash, generosity of spirit, and grit.
