For readers of such crusading works of nonfiction as Katherine Boo s 'Beyond the Beautiful Forevers' and Tracy Kidder s 'Mountains Beyond Mountains' comes a powerful and captivating examination of two entwined global crises: environmental destruction and human trafficking and an inspiring, bold plan for how we can solve them. A leading expert on modern-day slavery, Kevin Bales has traveled to some of the world s most dangerous places documenting and battling human trafficking.
