Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 159486957X, Hardcover)

      Paul Watson was born with his right hand missing. To defy people's expectations, he becomes an avid war journalist, traveling to the most dangerous places on earth and staying long after it was wise or safe to do so. Then, with the click of a camera shutter, Watson's life changes forever.
     As one of the last remaining journalists in Somalia, hehears that a Blackhawk has been shot down over Mogadishu,and that a mob is dragging the body of a U.S. soldier through the streets. Watson risks his life to infiltrate the mob and snap the photo that garners him the Pulitzer Prize. But as the accolades pour in and Watson travels to other troubled areas of the world, he can think only of the damage he has done—to Sergeant Cleveland’s family, whose last image of their son would always be the battered, dusty corpse Watson had photographed; and, he fears, to the spread of terrorism, with the worldwide spectacle his photo created from that barbarity.
     From the jungles of Rwanda to the ruined streets of Somalia to the craggy mountains of Afghanistan, this intimate portrayal of war from the front lines is raw and deeply human, a tale for our time.
