Another unusual teaching job,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Botswana Time (Paperback)
Will Randall once more finds himself taking a teaching job with a difference. This time he is teaching in a school in the town of Kasane in Botswana. Here he not only has to cope with teaching the children and running the football team,and living in a house with crocodiles and elephants on the doorstep, but has to also deal with some shady characters, and come to term with the devestation that AIDS is wrecking in Botswana.
Fans of Alexander McCall smith's 'No 1 Ladies Detective Agency' will be glad to know that the people of Botswana seem to be as kind, friendly and charming in real life as they are in that delightful series. It is cheering to read about an African country which, although it has its problems,seems to have a stable and decent government, and a population determined to make the best they can out of their country. Like will Randall's previous book 'Indian Summer' this is another book that makes you feel hopeful for the future of mankind.
