"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.

Industry Reviews

"Bryson is one of the funniest travel writers in the business." -- The Globe and Mail "Bryson has become an enormously popular travel writer by coming off as the most literate tour guide you've ever had." -- The New York Times

"Bryson is a terrific stylist. You can't help but enjoy his writing, for its cheer and buoyancy, and for the frequent demonstration of his peculiar, engaging turn of mind." -- Ottawa Citizen

"Bryson is first and foremost a storyteller -- and a supremely comic and original one at that." -- Winnipeg Free Press

Yet another brilliant but short Bryson book.


It is a 49 pge booklet Bryson wrote for CARE. I would like him to do a full book on travels through Africa.
