Item #: 107405
Written by the husband of Rebecca McDonald, founder and president of Women At Risk, International, this new book has two chapters on the birth and growth of WAR.
Stalked by lions, charged by rhinos, and chased by pirates, Phil McDonald has lived a life of adventure working overseas. Typhoid, malaria, riots, coups, and rebel soldiers were part of normal life. For his children, any day could be a grand field trip.
While unreal might read like a thriller, this memoir is more than an adventure story. The author recounts ninety events, highlights sixty lessons, from over thirty years of experience. With work experience in thirty-eight countries, Dr. McDonald has helped set up or empower more than 150 development projects on five continents. He says, "Make no mistake, don't let the word 'unreal' fool you. Trust me, personal experiences with rebel fighters, pirates, terrorists, and traffickers were all very real."
If you are drawn to adventure, to travel, and what it’s like to raise a family in an amazing environment, enjoy this read. Discover how to navigate danger, manage fear, and cope with loss. Embrace the hope, laugh at the ups and downs, and revel in the extravagant diversity and courage of inspiring partners who will change you forever.
Where this product came from
Stories capture what goes unseen. They open closed doors, reveal hidden evils, and celebrate recovery. Stories reach across the globe, finding their way into our hands and hearts. Voices once silenced by abuse, addiction, and abandonment become loud cries for justice through the power of the written word. Heart-wrenching accounts of slavery and exploitation awaken communities to dark realities and call them to action. All this begins with you. When you make a purchase in support of rescued and at-risk individuals, you do not just gain a book or a bracelet—you help to rewrite the stories of rescued and at-risk women, transforming knowledge into rescue and words into a way of life.
