One of our earliest journeys together took us to visit the ancient tribes of Southern Ethiopia with a most remarkable woman, Irma Turtle of Turtle Tours. A former vice president of Ogilvy and Mather Worldwide, she had found her mission in life with the tribal or traditional peoples on this planet. Her foundation, TurtleWill, seeks to help traditional peoples retain their cultures and preserve their dignity. Proceeds donated to the foundation go to such projects as volunteer medical bush missions, purchasing livestock in Mongolia, funding village wells in Mali, supporting an orphanage in southern India, funding burn care and cleft palate surgeries in Ethiopia, and supporting women’s cooperatives in Niger.

We are donating profits from the sale of this book to TurtleWill, as distributed to us by Butterfly Productions. Butterfly Productions will retain a reserve for future projects.

As you share our journey through these pages, please know that your purchase is reaching out to make a difference in the lives of many very special people . . . in the small corners.
