This collection of true short stories (with old photographs and letters) is about a young American couple who spend two years in a tiny village of grass huts helping very poor Ethiopian farmers establish a new town in the lowland jungle of Ethiopia’s Rift Valley. The stories are about how life choices are never black and white and even selfless good intentions can sometime have a serious downside.
