The story is told in Bonyo's words by Vanita Oelschlager who interviewed him and wrote this unique book. Born in the early 1960s near Kisumu, in western Kenya, Bonyo was inspired to pursue medicine after the tragic death of his infant sister. With help from his family, community members and strangers, Bonyo was able to attend boarding school many miles from his home and, ultimately, to complete his university and medical training in the United States. This training allowed Bonyo to attain his life's goal of establishing a medical clinic in his home village. Bonyo Bonyo's story emphasizes the value of education coupled with hard work and focuses heavily on the themes of togetherness and community support. This beautifully illustrated and richly detailed book is recommended for purchase.
