Title: The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind: Creating Currents of Electricity and Hope.
Description: London HarperCollins, 2009. 1st UK ed. Paperback octavo, very good condition, black & white drawings & text-photos, corners front cover minimally creased, spine little faded, minor edgewear. 273 pp. The author was born in Malawi, an African country where magic ruled, modern science was a mystery, finding food is an ongoing battle, and opportunity and hope were difficult to come by. With only a few old text books and his determination, he constructed a crude windmill. This windmill would prove to be a small miracle that would eventually bring electricity and water to William's little village, changing the community and the lives of the people in the village. This is an inspiring story about one person who was faced with adversity and how he made a difference by using his passion for science and technology. ISBN: 9780007316182.
