Tilly Grey didn’t travel by recreational vehicle during her five years in Africa, in fact, when asked what she feared most in Africa, she said: “Anything on four wheels.”
In her memoir, “On the Path with Heart: In Africa with Habitat for Humanity International,” Grey writes about her time as Habitat’s Africa/Middle East correspondent and the fascinating people she met along her incredible journey.
“This is a book about people. Not just the people I met in Africa, but about myself as well,” says Grey.
“The title ‘On the Path with Heart’ is a quote from Carlos Castenada. I used it because working in Africa for Habitat gave me a chance to use all the reporting and teaching skills I had accumulated in my life and do it to help a terrific organization. One day I was climbing up a steep path in Uganda to interview new homeowners and I heard myself humming under my breath. I stopped walking for a moment to savor the thought – I am happy.”
Her 276-page book is available in both e-book and paperback through Amazon.com.
