- DescriptionThis historical vel chronicles the struggle and evolution of an African boy born in rural colonial Kenya, to become a cosmopolitan adult. It depicts his struggles against poverty, igrance, nepotism, bigotry and racism. While the narrative is entertaining its focus is to motivate the reader to strive and reach his own chosen goal. As the title implies, much of what you aspire to is within your grasp if determination and desire are present. Its message is universal and relevant to readers of all ages.
