Maps Are Lines We Draw, eBook: ePUB for Nook & Apple

Price: $4.99

Description

After a decade of dreaming, Allison Coffelt arrived in Haiti, ready--she thought--"to learn how much she didn't know" about the Caribbean nation. Traveling the highways with Dr. Jean Gardy Marius, founder of the public health organization OSAPO, she embarked on a life-changing journey that would weave Haiti's proud, tumultuous history and present reality into her life forever.

Maps Are Lines We Draw explores the culture and natural beauty of the island as well as its discomfiting realities: the threat well-intentioned aid organizations can present to the local economy; the privilege that determines who gets to travel between a "here" and a distant "there" which is foreign and other; and the challenge of doing short-term good without creating long-lasting harm.
