Overview
A greatly expanded version of his original work, Breath of Kenya, Medicine, Mystery and Women in Rural Africa delightfully and dramatically relives the experience of a lone white adventurer on his first missionary journey to a primitive and remote African village. Charles Herrick lives among the mud huts and strange customs of Kenya in a manner not unlike the Africa of centuries gone by. He comes across a creeping health malady that is killing scores of villagers. Though not a doctor, he determines to resolve it. Written in an engaging style that takes you from intrigue to abhorrence, empathy to anger, the quirky humor often makes you laugh out loud while offering a balance to the tragic occurrences captured so poignantly and personally. In this version there is a significantly greater focus on the women of rural Kenya captures the eerie taboos and rituals as well as the daunting daily lives of village women. Some of it is shocking. Some of it is maddening. Most of it you have never heard of before. You will come to admire the strength of the women of Kenya. This book touches the heart, the mind and the funny bone. It is one of those books that pulls you in, holds onto you and makes you see things a little differently for a at least a brief period of time - but most likely forever.
