My Grandfather's Hat: The Travels of Habib Fakih - A Memoir (Paperback)
Leaving his home in Lebanon as a very young boy, the sometimes amazing, sometimes scary and dangerous, but always exciting adventures of Habib Fakih: His efforts to support his family and make his own way in the world were told to me, a family friend, as a heartfelt memoir of his life. Habib traveled to Palestine when he left his close-knit family. Later he started businesses in Nigeria and Sierra Leone to support his wife and children before immigrating to America. His memoir reflects his sense of responsibility to his family, his creativity in his business start-ups in raw jungle territory, and his diligence and focus throughout his life's voyage. Through all his undertakings you will see Habib's respect, compassion and generosity for the local people who were his neighbors wherever he lived.
