Bill Bryson's African Diary

by Bryson, Bill

Condition: See description


Transworld Publishers Ltd 2002. Small 8vo hardcover 64pp colour illus. near fine / near fine d/w. 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. .

Bill Bryson’s bestselling travel books include Notes from a Small Island , Notes from a Big Country , A Walk in the Woods , and Down Under . Born in Des Moines, Iowa, Bill Bryson lived in England for nearly two decades. He now lives in Hanover, New Hampshire, with his wife and four children.
