Two new books were released on August 25: a new deluxe edition of Mountains Beyond Mountains and Strength in What Remains.

A new deluxe edition of Mountains Beyond Mountains


Tracy Kidder's best-selling book tells the inspiring story of the founding and achievements of Partners In Health through the eyes of its co-founder, Paul Farmer.

In medical school, Paul found his life’s calling: to cure infectious diseases and to bring the lifesaving tools of modern medicine to those who need them most. Kidder’s magnificent account takes us from Harvard to Haiti, Peru, Cuba, and Russia as Farmer changes minds and practices through his dedication to the philosophy that “the only real nation is humanity.” At the heart of this book is the example of a life based on hope and on an understanding of the truth of the Haitian proverb “Beyond mountains there are mountains”—as you solve one problem, another problem presents itself, and so you go on and try to solve that one too.

This new deluxe edition includes a new, updated epilogue that shares more of the continuing story of Paul and Partners In Health and their work since the original publication of the book in 2003.

Strength in What Remains


Tracy Kidder's newest book tells the riveting true story of a young man and how his strong friendships and extraordinary determination help him both survive and create an organization to help those less fortunate.

Deo grew up in the mountains of Burundi, and survived a civil war and genocide before seeking a new life in America. In New York City he lived homeless in Central Park before finding his way to Columbia University. But Deo’s story really begins with his will to turn his life into something truly remarkable; he returns to his native country to help people there, as well as people in the United States.

In many ways Strength in What Remains is a natural companion for Mountains Beyond Mountains, and several of the same characters appear in both books, including PIH co-founders Paul Farmer and Ophelia Dahl.
