characters The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind Creating Currents of Electricity and Hope summary ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ William Kamkwamba William Kamkwamba ´ 3 summary William Kamkwamba was born in Malawi a country where magic ruled and modern science was mystery It was also a land withered by drought and hunger and a place where hope and opportunity were hard to find But William had read about windmills in a book called Using Energy and he dreamed of building one that would bring electricity and water to his village and change his life and the lives of those around him His neighbors may have mocked him and called him misala crazy but William was determined to show them what a little grit and ingenuity could doEnchanted by the workings of electricity as a boy William had a goal to study science in Malawi's top boarding schools But in 2002 his country was stricken with a fa. 25 This book presented me with uite a challenge I started out listening on audio but had trouble understanding the narrator His accent is probably authentic yet his sing ding voice and rise in dramatically storytelling sent me to the pages of print Luckily I had that optionI found my enjoyment of the story varied I different sections I enjoyed learning of their culture their storytelling tradition but there was some information that I wish had been left out The famine was awful it was difficult to read but the part that included the demise of the dog I am having a hard time getting it out of my head It s only a small part so if I knew it was coming i could have skipped that section Unfortunately it colored everything I went on to read from that point forward Silly I know but something I was unable to conuerThe importance of libraries where William checked out books that he used to learn how to build his windmill was wonderful This young man s persistence and curiousity is beyond admirable Even with books I could not have done what he did I also loved his family who surrounded him with love and acceptance So a rather mixed read for me again I am glad though to have met William and glad he was able to tell his story
