I sure didn’t expect it to find a gorgeous virgin nearly frozen to death in her car. I guess I’m going to have to find a way to warm her up.Heather: My friends are really bad with directions and apparently my GPS doesn’t work in the mountains.

    Tracy Kidder, Michael French

    Paperback (Ember, April 8, 2014)
    From Tracy Kidder, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of A Truck Full of Money, and adapted by Michael French comes this captivating and critically acclaimed young adult adaptation of the nonfiction edition of Kidder's Mountains Beyond Mountains, which tells the inspiring story of Dr. Paul Farmer, a Harvard-educated doctor with a self-proclaimed mission to transform healthcare on a global scale. Farmer focuses his attention on some of the world's most impoverished people and uses unconventional ways in which to provide healthcare, to achieve real results and save lives. From his humble beginnings and atypical childhood to his education at Harvard Medical School and on to Haiti, Peru, Cuba, and Russia, Farmer dedicated himself to the philosophy that "the only real nation is humanity." He sets an example of a life based on hope and understanding of the Haitian proverb "Beyond mountains there are mountains"—as you solve one problem, another problem presents itself, and so you go on and try to solve that one too. "An important story that feels like it breathes a dose of virtuous oxygen right into readers' heads."—Kirkus Reviews, Starred "Accessible and fascinating...It's focus on Farmer the humanitarian provides a much-needed education in empathy."—Booklist "A thoughtful examination of a complex man operating in a complex world."—The Horn BookA Junior Library Guild SelectionA Bank Street College Children's Book of the Year SelectionA CBC Notable Children's Trade Books in the Field of Social Studies Selection
