This book, in each two page spread, will do just that!Theintroduction to Hazara, for example, had the following: a history telling us that the Hazara people are descendants of Genghis Khan's army, a piece on life in Hazarajat (the region in Afghanistan where the Hazara live), color photographs of people and places, a factfile containing facts about where Hazaras live and how many there are in the world, a story about a Hazara refugee who became a Christian convert, a Did You Know? piece on the religion of the Hazara, a list of things we can thank God for, and a list of things we should ask God for. Other people we learn about include Indians, New Zealanders, Azerians, Greecians, Jolas, Refugees, and Uruguayans etc. While reading about terrible cruelties and conditions in other countries, the book still maintains an amazing optimism as it shares answered prayers in various countries and faith in God. 222 pgs, pb. ~ Genevieve
