Mountains Beyond Mountains

Mentioned in an article about Haiti that appeared in today's Journal.

Much about modern Haiti is explained by the rough 35-mile journey from Port-au-Prince to Zanmi Lasante, Creole for "Partners in Health." This oasis-like hospital, made famous by the 2003 bestseller "Mountains Beyond Mountains," sits on a dirt road in Haiti's central plateau, one of the poorest regions of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere.
