Alex Moon Peoples knows he's one of the walking wounded. As an international journalist, he knows, too, that no one wins a war on terrorism. Having witnessed one massacre, famine, epidemic, or civil war after another during his years in Africa, he dreams every night children are starving to death and it is up to him to save them. Returning to the States has only increased his anxiety. When friend Paul invites him to visit one of the poorest, most war-torn countries in South America to report on a potentially life-affirming narrative encoded on an ancient, broken urn, he feels compelled to go. What he finds will change his life.

A story of redemption as much as discovery-the chronicle of an idealist consumed with hatred, a fanatic disgusted by fanaticism, a man who longs to love but who struggles each day just to heal his own brokenness-"Searching the Andes for Albert Schweitzer" probes the mysteries of the human heart.
