Summary

Award-winning photographer Tom Craig was commissioned by a humanitarian charity to document some of the most respected writers in the world traveling to war zones and places in trouble: -Martin Amis spent time in some of the world's most ferocious favelas in Colombia and shares stories of professional assassins, drug smuggling, territorial battles and gang violence. -Ali Smith traveled to Morocco to witness the plight of countless sub-Saharan refugees who made epic journeys while being hunted down by authorities and border patrols. -Daniel Day-Lewis documented the trauma of growing up in Palestine, one of the world's most relentless battlegrounds. -Joanne Harris traveled to the Congo, where she helped seek the prevention of sleeping sickness--on the way she discovered mile upon mile of the world's most mysterious river and a maverick group of rebels that went by the name of "The Ninjas." D - B C Pierre looked into the unusually high incidence of mental health issues in Armenia. -Danny Boyle went to Muynak, Uzbekistan, the fishing port that has been abandoned by the vanishing "Arral Sea." Few things are left, but one of them is a vicious form of multi-drug-resistant tuberculosis. -Tracy Chevalier wrote about visiting Burundi and meeting an unthinkably high percentage of women who had been raped and abused. -Minette Walters endured a relentless journey on the nonexistent roads of Sierra Leone, which has the highest rate of infant mortality in the world. -A. A. Gill visited the Eastern border of Chad, where he witnessed tens of thousands of refugees fleeing from the Janjaweed in Darfur. -Michel Faber spent time in Odessa, where he saw first had the neglected sufferers of HIV in the Ukraine. Street children, the homeless and some secret hospital wards gave rise to powerful writing. -Jim Crace went to Cambodia to see the devastating effect of not only the world's deadliest disease but its evil mutated counterpart, multi-drug-resistant malaria. -Hari Kunzru dodged the thirty known active insurgent groups in Assam to see firsthand how Malaria is killing more people than any of the insurgent wars.
