Lunson'wa is a remote outpost in a rural section of Zambia. It is also where Nyanyiyen'u Alfred Chipawa was born.
Chipawa knew from an early age that he wanted to become an educated, respected professional, but the nearest school was twenty kilometers away. Over the next decade, he walked more than four thousand kilometers in the scorching heat to fulfill his dream.
This wasn't the only challenge Chipawa faced in a changing Zambia. In the early 1970s, he was accepted at the University of Zambia, only to be forced out when the government closed the entire university four months later. Chipawa would have to decide which road to take. Should he give up, or should he continue his "hard and bold walk"?
Chipawa's book will inspire readers considering their own difficult decisions. His memoir not only highlights his inner strength but also chronicles the growing pains of an impoverished, struggling country. He provides an invaluable look at the Mushala uprising, which Chipawa believes has been unfairly forgotten. A Hard and Bold Walk isn't just Chipawa's stirring story; it is also a moving and powerful account of the growing pains of his family, his community, and his country.
