Among the Somalis | Diaries from two decades of journeying through their lands and souls

Since then she has become a regular visitor to the Horn of Africa and an eyewitness to the progress made in Somaliland. This book draws on her many encounters with the Somalis, both in the Horn of Africa and in Norway, where she is an active member of the Norwegian-Somali Community.
