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.
