Description

In the northeast of what is now the country of Tanzania sits Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa. At the base of the mountain live the Chagga people, known throughout the region as the caretakers of the mountain.

Co-written by Eric Walters and Godfrey Nkongolo, Light a Candle weaves nonfiction with fiction to tell the story of a boy coming of age in the shadow of Kilimanjaro and his father, the chief of their tribe. The boy climbs the mountain against his father's wishes to fulfill a request of the country's first leader, Julius Nyerere, to light a candle on the top of the mountain and unify the mainland of Tanganyika and the islands of Zanzibar as one country, the United Republic of Tanzania.

About the authors

Godfrey Nkongolo is a doctoral student in political science with extensive experience working in international and community development in Tanzania. One of his passions both within his studies and beyond is to promote African thought and to show the world that Africa has a message of hope even though the story of Africa that is most widely known is one of despair. This book is, therefore, a part of his life mission—to promote a positive message of, and from, Africa. He now lives in Toronto, Ontario with his family.
