        WELL, Kevin...since you asked.
I will succumb to shameless self promotion. Here are the two books I
currently have in print.

Touched By Fire: doctors without borders in a third world crisis.
McClelland and Stewart Canada

By Elliott Leyton and Greg Locke

        Its about the French medical aid agency Medecins Sans Frontieres/MSF
(or Doctors Without Borders.) and their roll in the Rwandan genocide and
refugee crises of recent years. I spent 3 months in Rwanda, Zaire, Kenya and
Somalia working on this one.

Hardcover, 212 pages 70 photographs

        I have a few pictures on my website from the book. 
Got to  and follow the links for

It's a one-eyed man looking through a little 'ole. 
Now, how much reality can there be in that?" -- David Hockney
