About the Author

Gerasimos Kambites was born in Montreal in 1947, a third generation Greek Canadian, raised in his father�s corner store. Over 15 years he read every comic book and most magazines that came through the business. He went to Sir George Williams University in Montreal from 1965-69, then worked as a Parliamentary journalist for United Press International from 1969-73. He wrote two stories for National Geographic and produced an audio documentary on Mount Athos: In the Fullness of Truth for CBC. He was a videographer for the Transworld Snowmobile Expedition in 1973. That experience led him to Holy Cross Seminary in Brookline, Massachusetts and Sinai�s St. Katherine�s Monastery where he spent 6 months. Earning a Master�s in Divinity, he went to medical school at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario before heading to Uganda. He was ordained to the priesthood by the late Metropolitan Vitaly, founded Annunciation Orthodox Church on Bukasa island and St. Xenia�s of St. Petersburg in Ottawa, eventually leaving the priesthood. He then studied psychiatry and now works as an Orthodox psychotherapist. He and his wife, Ann, raise sheep and horses on a farm on the Rideau River, and continue to support Father Christopher Walusimbi on Bukasa. In 2008, Dr. Kambites took part in National Geographic�s Genographic DNA tracking program. The greatest irony for him is that his genetic map marks him as having originated in East Africa, in the Northern part of Lake Victoria. By moving to Uganda, in a true sense, he was just coming home.

An amazing journey to equatorial Africa.  I laughed and cried.  An exceptional page turner that should not be missed.
