An entertaining book

Originally posted on on Apr 9, 2007

I just finished Scott Griffin's My Heart is Africa, the story of his flight to and around Africa in his Cessna. Yes, he actually flew from Canada to Africa in a prop plane.

This book is an entertaining memoir of his experiences. It starts with his flight to Africa. It introduces you to the people he met, briefly covers his work with the non-profit Flying Doctors of Africa (he neither a pilot nor a doctor for them),and recounts his adventures in Africa.

I bought this book after hearing Scott Griffin speak at my library. He claims not to be a writer, but the pacing is easy, and the description marvelous. I felt like I had met the people and seen the landscape.
