Different Drums

Michael Wood, David Coulson (Photographs by)

– A Doctor’s Forty Years in Eastern Africa –

“… Flying from his base in Nairobi to the tribal lands of the Maasai, the Muslim villages on the coast, and the Ethiopian highlands, Wood established hospitals and conducted clinics, responding to medical emergencies throughout the area. He came to know the land and its peoples intimately.
From engrossing anecdotes about the individuals and practices he encountered to thoughtful meditations on the social end political struggles of disparate cultures coming to terms with the modern world. Wood’s rich remembrance conveys a beautifully rounded picture of the complex cultures of Eastern Africa. He brings an exotic cast – desert nomads, Muslims, Swahilis, and Maasai warriors – vividly to life. And he thoughtfully examines the devastating effects of overpopulation, drought, and land erosion. …”
