Little Princes: One Man's Promise to Bring Home the Lost Children of Nepal - by Conor Grennan

For three months, 29-year-old Irish-American Conor Grennan volunteered at the Little Princes Children's Home, south of Kathmandu, in war-torn Nepal. Eventually, he learned that the institution wasn't housing orphans like he'd thought. The young boys (and two girls) had families who loved them -- but they'd been abandoned in the chaotic city by a lying child trafficker who had charged their rural parents huge sums of money to take them to a supposedly safe area where they would be taken care of. Appalled, Grennan set out to reunite the children who had captured his heart with their families. This inspiring debut by the likeable Grennan, who founded the non-profit charity Next Generation Nepal, may move you to both laughter and tears.
Mountains Beyond Mountains - by Tracy Kidder

For this portrait of charismatic infectious disease expert Dr. Paul Farmer, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Tracy Kidder traveled with the unconventional Harvard genius from Boston to Haiti, Peru, Cuba, and Russia. While in these far-flung places, Kidder watched the tireless Farmer not only provide medical aid but kindness and social care for numerous people. Farmer, who first became interested in Haiti in college after meeting Haitian immigrants working in North Carolina tobacco fields, continues to make the world a healthier and safer place. In a starred review, Kirkus Reviews calls Mountains Beyond Mountains a "skilled and graceful exploration of the soul of an astonishing human being."
