    1. When this was selected as one of the selections for a group here in , I had to resort to interlibrary loan to find a copy of this out of print book. We are focusing on South Sudan for January and February, and as you might imagine, there isn't a lot to choose from. This is written by a Kenyan writer with photos added by a Dutch photographer. They are sponsored by a German NGO that in 2003 was working to fight Human African trypanosomiasis, otherwise known as the Sleeping Sickness. This disease h [...]

    2. Very interesting way to draw attention to a crisis, although sadly this book (booklet?) is difficult to get now.

Many of the photographs are of those suffering from sleeping sickness, and there's some more straightforward/factual information at the end, but much of the book is a hazy wander through Sudanese villages, a steeping i [...]
