What is included with this book?


Both a memoir and a call to action, this book is a gripping account of the author’s quest to eradicate landmines from the face of the earth.

Heidi Kühn’s Roots of Peace is at once an inspirational memoir and a passionate essay about her lifelong struggle to eradicate fields of landmines and replace them with agricultural projects that bring families in war-torn regions relief from poverty and a way out of conflict.

Roots of Peace offers a compelling path out of terror and a way to heal the wounds of war. Here is an “economics of peace” grounded in practical solutions to entrenched global problems. The book is written from the point of view of a mother of four with a strong background in business and a humanitarian vocation. Kühn is a woman of faith who seized an unprecedented opportunity to join an international cause: from the basement of her Marin County home, Kühn created a nongovernmental organization of groundbreaking impact. The result of her efforts is Roots of Peace, an NGO that propels the author into a leading role on the world stage, where she takes her place at the table with secretaries-general, the Pope, prime ministers, and presidents to champion the needs of families and children throughout the world. In telling her own story of engagement, Kühn inspires ordinary people to join together and do the extraordinary—beat swords into ploughshares and turn seeds of hate into seeds of peace.
