Summary

Uganda gained independence from Britain in 1962. Since then, Ugandans have had to endure much political instability, civil war, and poverty. Led by President Yoweri Museveni, Uganda has been taking small but steady steps toward a stronger economy, improved health care, and education for all. From the towering Ruwenzori Mountains to vast Lake Victoria, from bewildering arrays of bird species to the endangered mountain gorilla, and from the ancient rain forests at Bwindi to the modern, bustling capital of Kampala, this book captures everyday life in Uganda and the major events that have molded the nation.
