My Heart Is Africa
A Flying AdventureBook - 2006
In 1996, Scott Griffin left his comfortable business career to work for the Flying Doctors Service, an organization that flies doctors and aid workers to remote regions throughout Africa. He tells the story of his two-year odyssey here, from his harrowing solo flight over the Atlantic in a single-engine Cessna to his experiences on the ground, including getting arrested, crashing, and re-crashing his plane. Vividly portraying Africa's beauty and humanity, this engaging account leads readers through deserts, mountains, and jungles, taking them into the lives of the eccentric characters Griffin meets along the way.
