    Quest Reads invites you to read and discuss Mountains Beyond Mountains, Tracy Kidder’s inspiring and unsettling portrait of a modern-day saint. Dr. Paul Farmer has devoted his life to succoring the impoverished in health care deserts like Haiti, Peru, and Rwanda. He does not merely do so by offering his expertise and access to Western medicine. He also collaborates with rural communities in establishing culturally sensitive and sustainable systems for delivering health care for their people. For Kidder, the example of Dr. Farmer should disturb the comfortable as well as comfort those disturbed by the widening gap between lives lived in rich countries and lives lived in poor.
