For $.03 (yup, 3 cents) I got this great book

Well I had to pay shipping too. The photos and text are by Mohammed Amin and Zulf Khalfan... it is called "We Live in Kenya" and it is a very nice elementary school level reader... printed in 1984. Seriously out of date, but a great model for what never happened (thousands of other books just like this...). Mohamed Amin is one of Africa's greatest photographers (he sadly died in in a plane hijacking that went awry). Here's a video intro to his life.
