Publishers WeeklyPart photo journal, part philanthropist's travelogue, Duncan's original and honest account of one American's connection with individuals in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Darfur makes a colorful and eye-opening tour of communities in peril. Inspired by Abraham Bongassi, the field director for Save the Children in Saharan Africa, Duncan made the idea of "sharing without thinking" his personal mission. Duncan's first-hand account of helping those facing crisis-including the very non-governmental aid workers already working to help-is captivating, especially alongside a gorgeous array of color photographs capturing the land and people. With maps, statistics, and cogent background information, Duncan's travels hit home whether he's describing a driver listening to Billy Joel on the streets of Afghanistan or the Pakistan hotel he stayed in just a week before it was bombed. Duncan's addendum, "Things We Can Do," provides resources and related reading for readers caught up by Duncan's spirit of giving.
