In search of adventure, 29-year-old Conor Grennan traded his day job for a year-long trip around the globe, a journey that began with a three-month stint volunteering at the Little Princes Children's Home, an orphanage in war-torn Nepal. Conor was initially reluctant to volunteer, unsure whether he had the proper skill, or enough passion, to get involved in a developing country in the middle of a civil war. But he was soon overcome by the herd of rambunctious, resilient children.

having been to Nepal many times... in 80's and 90's I was delighted by this book of more current events. What an amazing person you are Conor! You should be so so pleased with what you have accomplished. I long to go back!
Great job narrating, great story, great turn out.
I agree with previous review, story starts out with some resistance and gains momentum as book progresses... similar, I would think, to the way this young man's life transitioned from self-absorbed adolescent to proactive adulthood. Bravo!!!
