The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind

By William Kamkwamba, Bryan Mealer




When fourteen-year-old William Kamkwamba's Malawi village was hit by a drought, everyone's crops began to fail. Without enough money for food, let alone school, William spent his days in the library . . . and figured out how to bring electricity to his village. Persevering against the odds, William built a functioning windmill out of junkyard scraps, and thus became the local hero who harnessed the wind.

Lyrically told and gloriously illustrated, this story will inspire many as it shows how - even in the worst of times - a great idea and a lot of hard work can still rock the world.

The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind: Creating Currents of Electricity and Hope.

Kamkwamba, William; Mealer, Bryan.

London: HarperCollins, 2009. 1st UK ed.. Paperback octavo, very good condition, black & white drawings & text-photos, corners front cover minimally creased, spine little faded, minor edgewear. 273 pp. The author was born in Malawi, an African country where magic ruled, modern science was a mystery, finding food is an ongoing battle, and opportunity and hope were difficult to come by. With only a few old text books and his determination, he constructed a crude windmill. This windmill would prove to be a small miracle that would eventually bring electricity and water to William's little village, changing the community and the lives of the people in the village. This is an inspiring story about one person who was faced with adversity and how he made a difference by using his passion for science and technology.
