Publisher Comments:

An astonishing testament to true courage, the transformative power of love, and the ability of one man to make a real difference.

In search of adventure, twenty-nine-year-old Conor Grennan embarked on a yearlong journey around the globe, beginning with a three-month stint volunteering at an orphanage in civil war-torn Nepal. But a shocking truth would forever change his life: these rambunctious, resilient children were not orphans at all but had been taken from their families by child traffickers who falsely promised to keep them safe from war before abandoning them in the teeming chaos of Kathmandu. For Conor, what started as a footloose ramble became a dangerous, dedicated mission to unite youngsters he had grown to love with the parents they had been stolen from--a breathtaking adventure, as Conor risked everything in the treacherous Nepalese mountains to bring the children home.

This is easily the best nonfiction book I have read for a very long time. The author undergoes a life changing experience volunteering to work at an orphanage in Nepal. His initial plan is to volunteer for 3 months as a resume enhancer, then spend 9 months travelling the world. He does his volunteer work, but is so touched by the children that after his travels he returns to Nepal. Finding that many of the children are not orphans at all, he establishes a foundation to work toward reuniting the families. Mr. Grennan is very honest about his mistakes and shortcomings, and quick to give others credit for their ideas and contributions. That honesty is very touching. You will not be able to help comparing this book to Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson, but Little Princes is far better.
