Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, A Man Who Would Cure The World written by Tracy Kidder. (Winner of the Pulitzer Prize) At the center of Mountains Beyond Mountains stands Paul Farmer. Doctor, Harvard professor, renowned infectious-disease specialist, anthropologist, the recipient of a MacArthur "genius" grant, world-class Robin Hood, Farmer was brought up in a bus and on a boat, and in medical school found his life's calling: diagnose and cure infectious disease and to bring the lifesaving tools of modern medicine to those who need them most. this magnificent book shows how radical change can be fostered in situations that seem insurmountable, and it also shows how a meaningful life can be created, as Farmer - brilliant, charismatic, charming, both a leader in international health and a doctor who finds time to make house calls in Boston and the mountains of Haiti - blasts through convention to get results. 317 pp. with bibliography.
