For a quarter century in more than ninety countries, Habitat for Humanity has built homes with and for the people who are most in need of them, aided by more than a million volunteers—two of the most devoted of whom are former president Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalynn.

In this captivating look at Habitat from the inside out:

• Listen to personal accounts from volunteers and homeowners about building Habitat homes
• Learn of the physical challenges Habitat faces due to climate, available building materials, and resources at building sites around the world
• Understand how Habitat for Humanity offers a “hand up, not a hand out” to people in need

“This is an inspiring book, telling how ideas starting on a little farm in Georgia have grown to a worldwide movement bringing people together.” —Pete Seeger, songwriter
