My Journey Through War and Peace: Explorations of a Young Filmmaker, Feminist and Spiritual Seeker (The Heroine’s Journey Book 1)  by Melissa Burch

Burch’s memoir recounts her remarkable experiences over eight years as a photographer covering the war in Soviet-occupied Afghanistan in the 1980s and as a filmmaker, and also her own personal and spiritual journey as a young woman…. Her accounts provide revealing glimpses into the conflict, Afghan culture, and the dangers of war reporting, particularly for a woman.”
~ Publishers Weekly

“In this memoir, a documentary filmmaker describes her dramatic journeys, both outward and inward… An absorbing, well-written memoir by a brave adventurer who discovered her own life.”
~ Kirkus Reviews

“At twenty-two, Melissa Burch headed to Afghanistan with a camera… determined to film a war for CBS and to find herself. MY JOURNEY THROUGH WAR AND PEACE is the dizzying and dazzling account of that journey.”
~ Foreword Reviews
