A Gringo in Peru: A Story of Compassion in Action is the true story of one man's journey from his American life and into the Peruvian Andes where he created a project for poor children and discovered what true wealth really was. The story shares his adventures from his flight from Baltimore to escape a murder contract on his life to his challenges and successes in Peru, where he was a stranger not knowing the language, culture, or customs. His creation of Changes for New Hope fulfilled a long time dream of developing a project for the benefit of poor children in a Third World country. What he did not anticipate was how the love of the children, the appreciation of the Quechua people in their pueblos, and the reaction of people back in the "real world" would morph his life to new heights of compassion, tenacity, and humanitarianism. A Gringo in Peru acts as an inspiration and motivational force for anyone who dreams of making the world a better place and wants to share in the journey of one man's life dedicated to that purpose.
