За горами - горы
Tracy Kidder - 2004-08-31 (впервые опубликовано в 2003)
Рейтинг Goodreads
Трейси Киддер, американский журналист и писатель, лауреат Пулитцеровской премии, рассказывает историю Пола Фармера, врача, который неутомимо борется за право беднейших жителей Земли на квалифицированную медицинскую помощь. Путешествуя из Гарварда в Гаити и Перу, на Кубу и в Россию, Фармер меняет мир вокруг себя. Его девиз: "Единственная национальность - человек". Его путь описывает гаитянская пословица "за горами - горы", означающая, что за решенной проблемой встают сотни новых. Но доктор Фармер никогда не сдается - и горы расступаются перед ним.

@sarahookr Slight side note. If you want a great book about the invention of the shipping container and what impacts it had across many industries, I highly recommend "The Box: How the Shipping Container Made the World Smaller and the World Economy Bigger" by Marc Levinson.      источник
