More about author, volunteer Tilly Grey,


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
