The Boy who Harnessed the Wind
The story of William growing up in Malawi with his family and friends in a small village, surviving famine, with his parents trying to earn enough money to send William to school. William decides he can educate himself using books from the local school library, and he builds an electricity-generating windmill from spare parts and old rubbish.
Uplifting story of a family's struggle to survive poverty and famine and a boy's determination to succeed.
