Chasing Chaos: My Decade In and Out of Humanitarian Aid
by Jessica Alexander

Alexander writes a frank memoir about the past decade she’s spent working in humanitarian aid from refugee camps in Rwanda, Darfur, and Sierra Leone to disaster relief in Haiti and Indonesia. This is an enlightening account of what life is really like in the trenches of aid work and a glimpse into the tragedies and resiliency of displaced people across the globe.

Small Feet, Big Land: Adventure, Home, and Family on the Edge of Alaska by Erin McKittrick
McKittrick and her husband first went adventuring as new college grads, but returned to the landscape of Alaska as a biologist-geologist pair of new parents. Following up on her previous travel-adventure memoir, this book tells the fascinating story of their travels with children around Alaska, peppered with their own scientific insights into what they saw, particularly climate change and its impacts visible even on the scale of mere years between their trips.
