Lost on Earth: Nomads of the New World by Mark Fritz

InLost on Earth, Pulitzer Prize-winning foreign correspondent Mark Fritz enters into the twilight world of contemporary refugees as they trek across landscapes that are continually being reshaped by the aftershocks of the Cold War. As countries around the world are shattered by ancient feuds, seemingly unconnected global events are humanized in this account by people like Herbert Puchwein, a detective from Vienna who rescues a busload of orphans in Sarajevo, and Senada Suljic whose Bosnian family prays that their paths will cross again. Fritz tells of a bored East German girl who slips into a forest one day and finds a magical land on the other side; an engineer from Liberia who watches his neatly constructed life become dismantled by war; a jaded nurse from Ohio who drifts from emergency room to emergency room, hooked on adrenaline; and an exiled college student who fights to recapture his homeland. Investigating the forces at play in the world, Fritz tells where these refugees arefrom, why they flee, and what they encounter during their journeys. Filled with terror and drama, tragedy and inspiration,Lost on Earthis a remarkable account of the human will to survive.
