Powerful story of how one village works to break out of custom to better provide for its community. It's much more than this. A philosophy of generosity and kindness, a choice to put community ahead of materialism while improving farming practices. The characters are well drawn and have expanded my understanding of and appreciation for the culture of one village in Botswana and maybe the world.

Never would have thought of ordering this if it wasn't for my Women's Lit class but it was a great read and I didn't want to put it down
I enjoyed reading this while traveling through Botswana this fall. The book gives a great picture of the local people, culture, and a bit of history.
