  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.

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.
