Six Months in Sudan
A Young Doctor in A War-torn VillageeBook - 2011
Dr. James Maskalyk returned last year from Sudan where he was the first official blogger for Medecins Sans Frontieres / Doctors Without Borders. He wrote about his life on assignment in Abyei, a town near the Darfur region of Sudan, where he spent almost six months tending patients at great personal risk. In "Six Months in Sudan", Maskalyk weaves these daily journal entries into a moving and beautifully written memoir of his time with MSF. It is an extraordinary book which explains what it's like to try to keep disease, violence, terror and despair at bay while administering front-line care in one of the most dangerous and desperate places on earth.
