I have a strong interest in the culture and lifeways of people living in central and eastern Africa, so I was delighted to read reviews of a book called "The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind", by William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer. It is about a young man in Malawi (central Africa) who experiments with wind power as a way to bring electricity to his village.
This book is on my list of definite TO READS! I haven't read it yet, so I am excited to have the chance to win a copy here:
Enter by the 18th if you want a chance to win, too.
