Mountains Beyond Mountains book recommendation
This is a great book, about a physician, Paul Farmer. He did not find work, he found a passion working to improve the health status of Haiti. This is about the most inspiring book I have ever read. He got very involved in conquering Drug Resistant TB in the world.
The author is Tracy Kidder.
It makes all the work I have done in my life pale by comparison. The title, Mountains beyond mountains refers to the Haitian legend that once you scale one mountain, you see the next.
After reading this, I read "The Comedians" by Graham Greene which he referenced quite a bit. It was another great read. I went on to read "Travels with my Aunt" by Greene, but in the end there is some talk of south america taking in Nazi figures and it might disturb some reader.
I had to share the Mountains beyond mountains, I will be seeing Tracy Kidder next month and this is a reading initiative in my county to read this book.
