Product description

Review

‘THE BOY WHO HARNESSED THE WIND is the inspiring story of a young man in Africa who used the only resources available to him to build a windmill and elevate the lives and spirits of those in his community. William Kamkwamba's achievements with wind energy should serve as a model of what one person, with an inspired idea, can do to tackle the crisis we face. His book tells a moving and exciting story.’
Al Gore, former Vice President and Nobel Laureate

‘A moving, touching, important story. One more reminder of…how powerful the human spirit can be.’
Seth Godin, author

‘One of the best books I have ever read.’
Mark Frauenfelder, boingboing.net

“William is one of the bright young stars of the future and serves as an inspiration for other young people who want to know what they can do to help.” Bishop Desmond Tutu
