A Bend in the Nile: My Life in Nubia and Other Places (Paperback)

Usually despatched in 7-10 days.


'You'll never come to any good', Chris McIvor is told by his headmaster as he is expelled yet again. Some years later he takes a temporary teaching job in Sudan. Unfamiliar with their language and customs he struggles to control his first class of 55 bright girls. In this absorbing account Chris McIvor discovers Africa, finds love - and loses it - travels through the desert, along the Nile, and finally visits the war-locked region of Chad. Often in danger, and reliant on the kindness of strangers - which never fails him - he comes to love the vast area located in Southern Egypt and Northern Sudan known as Nubia, and takes the first steps towards his life's work in overseas aid.
