Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder
Author Tracy Kidder takes us on an inspiring journey of the renowned doctor Paul Farmer. Dr. Farmer is devoted to the many causes including working with the poor in Haiti. He is enthralled with working to improve humanity through his knowledge of the modern medical profession. He had an eccentric upbringing only to find his calling in medical school. He has devoted his life to save lives and has engaged others to follow his path. Many of his personal relationships are disclosed including his short marriage to a Haitian anthropologist where a daughter is born. The book tells the full story of how one person can make a difference. I found the book very inspiring and would highly recommend it for those wanting to read an uplifting true story.
