#4 LONG WALK ON A DRY ROAD by Jon Kaufman

This #1 International Bestseller is an experience of love at first sight and one of the most important books to read from 2018. Woven with rich storytelling, you’ll travel to the poorest areas of the world with Jon Kaufman’s H20penDoors on a journey to bring self-reliance and dignity as much as access to safe-drinking water for every human on the planet. I found myself both laughing aloud, and teary-eyed… and had only reached page 13. As Henri Matisse once said, “Creativity Takes Courage.” Long Walk On A Dry road is both creative and courageous! 100% of proceeds go to H2OpenDoors!
