Kenneth Cline has published a book describing his experiences in Yemen during his fellowship (1983-84). The book is dedicated to longtime ICWA Executive Director Peter Bird Martin. 

“Cline spent five months living with a Yemeni farming family in their remote mountain village, an experience afforded few other Westerners,” the book description reads. “In this part memoir/part travel story, he describes his struggles with cultural differences and personal relationships in a harsh desert land, where the distance between East and West is not easily crossed.”

Mr. Kennis Goes to Yemen: A Story of West Meets East (Mot-Mot Publishing) is available on Amazon.

The e-book version is available free until Friday, April 1, 2022.
