This book isn't so much about papyrus and peat and their multiple uses which go beyond parchment and rope, it is also about what happens when irresponsible development happens in Africa as well as the wars and rumours of wars that happen when water rights are disputed. A good primer for anyone who wants to know why the continent is so stymied in its efforts to develop.
