Wonderful but haunting stories  This book is wonderfully researched, full of individual traumas that we cannot comprehend here in the US. This book, in conjunction with President Uribe's book, puts the Colombian conflict and the necessary policy responses into context. One comes away with admiration for the daily courage that Colombians had to exhibit through the bad years. I highly recommend this book just for the stories of overcoming daily tragedy and also for those wanting a better understanding of the Colombian experience.
