Will Randall travels with a purpose, as well as an outrageous sense of fortune. In INDIAN SUMMER he found himself, by chance, having the extraordinary experience of helping slum schoolchildren put on a play to help save their school. In Botswana he was taken up by a headmaster to teach a class of six year olds at The River of Life school. They are football crazy and one of Will's jobs is to take them to play neighbouring (sometimes as much as 100 miles away) schools. Camping en-route or staying in farms and rural villages, often travelling by foot or dug-out punts, thousands of antelope, elephant, buffalo and zebra follow their progress. The sound of lions, leopards and hyenas become the soundtrack of their dreams. Against all the odds they find themselves preparing for the Grand Final of the season - the titanic clash with arch rivals, Victoria Falls Primary school.
Both an endearing personal story and a travel book about a little-known but highly successful country, BOTSWANA TIME will win new fans for both Will Randall and the extraordinary country of Botswana.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a good-humoured book, written by a man who went to Botswana with an open heart. The result is a wonderful, amusing and affirmative book about that remarkable country, filled with laughter, colour, and simple decency. Bravo, Mr Randall. Bravo. * Alexander McCall Smith *
An engaging and insighful travel book about an amazing country. * WATERSTONE'S BOOKS QUARTERLY *
A thoroughly uplifting book, BOTSWANA TIME manages to capture all the old fashioned humour of an Englishman abroad without one insulting the locals. * INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY *
Both an endearing personal story and a travel book about a little-known but highly successful country. * LIVING ABROAD MAGAZINE *
