Farmer is fantastic! It's the true story of Tantoh, a young boy from Cameroon, who just wants to farm. His family discourages him, but Tantoh studies agriculture in college until he gets Typhoid from bad water. It takes seven years to recover, but Tantoh turns his problem into a solution by bringing food and water to his village. Take a trip to Cameroon, and read how one boy made a difference. Farmer is fantastic!
Whenever I read or write, I find a comfy chair with a great view. I get my favorite drink, stretch out, and let the words take me away.
