Notes from My Travels: Visits with Refugees in Africa, Cambodia, Pakistan and Ecuador

Simon and Schuster, 1 de nov de 2007 - 256 páginas
Three years ago, award-winning actress Angelina Jolie took on a radically different role as a Goodwill Ambassador for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). Here are her memoirs from her journeys to Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Pakistan, Cambodia, and Ecuador, where she lived and worked and gave her heart to those who suffer the world's most shattering violence and victimization.
