In My Home There Is No More Sorrow

Ten Days in Rwanda
Bass, Rick (Book - 2012)
In My Home There Is No More Sorrow

Item Details

Last year Rick Bass traveled to Rwanda, roaming from the bustle of Kigali to the breathtaking volcanic preserves of the last few mountain gorillas. Now he offers an extraordinary portrait of what can be found in that country today-heartbreaking evidence of the genocide that occurred there a generation ago, dazzling natural beauty, and young people who have emerged from tragedy with a blazingly optimistic spirit and a profound artistic voice. In My Home There Is No More Sorrow is an enchanting, harrowing narrative achievement-an unforgettable exploration of history and human nature from one of our greatest essayists.
