More than just a travelogue, the book tells the stories of twenty years of international experiences Latessa had working with volunteer physicians, nurses, educators and administrators, and how working with people from different cultures, races, and religions gave him insights about tolerance, respect, careful planning, and the importance of listening before talking.
