Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here is a man who suffers so his readers can laugh. — Daily Telegraph

Bill Bryson travels to Kenya in support of CARE International. All royalties and profits go to CARE International.

Bryson visits Kenya at the invitation of CARE International, the charity dedicated to eradicating poverty. Kenya is a land of contrasts, with famous game reserves and a vibrant culture. It also provides plenty to worry a traveller like Bill Bryson, fixated as he is on the dangers posed by snakes, insects and large predators. It is also a country with many serious problems: refugees, AIDS, drought, and grinding poverty. The resultant diary, though short in length, contains the trademark Bryson stamp of wry observation and curious insight.

Synopsis:

Bill Bryson goes to Kenya at the invitation of CARE International, a charity which works with local communities to eradicate poverty around the world. Travelling around the country, Bryson casts his eye on a continent new to him, and writes a diary with wry observation and curious insight.

Synopsis:

In September of this year Bill Bryson is due to travel to Kenya at the invitation of the charity CARE which is dedicated to ending world poverty. Alongside the country's treasures and charms Bryson will visit its refugee camps and slums and this book will be a diary of his journey. 8pp illus. ALL AUTHOR ROYALTIES AND PUBLISHER PROFITS WILL GO TO CARE INTERNATIONAL UK.
