I laughed. I cried. Africa gets in your soul. I know this having grown up in East and West Africa with a father working in agriculture and livestock development projects. Mullen's poignant tale evokes the sights and scents of Africa for me. He portrays the trials and tribulations as well as the rewards and personal growth with his well written prose. Having never been to Malawi, he has given me a tremendous sense of the beauty of the country and its people. Thanks for sharing your experiences.
