Dr. Obrechts book has also been named a finalist for the Montaigne Medal, a sub-category and an additional distinction beneath the broader Eric Hoffer Awards umbrella. This medal is given for books that illuminate, progress, or redirect thought about vital world issues and the human achievements that produce such changes in society. Drama, humor, tears and the joy of traveling around the world to help others -- whether in the devastation of a tsunami, the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, or in the jungles of South America, the very people Dr. Obrecht helps teach her, in turn, much about life, living and the value of relationships.
