Bill Bryson's African Diary

A slender book, written as a fundraiser for CARE efforts in Africa, the African Diary has all of the trademark evidences of Bryson authorship--humor, warmth, and lively prose.  The book tells the story of 8 days spent in Kenya visiting some of the poorest places in the world.  It also recounts some of the efforts made by CARE and others to assist the people of Kenya.

I don't know if the proceeds still benefit CARE or if the book is still available, but if so, you could pick a worse way to donate to a laudable cause.
