The Boy Who Was Bullied

At the turn of the century, in a rural corner of New Brunswick, a boy was born whose life and learning would lead him to revolutionize the nature of international law. This is the story of John Peters Humphrey, a disabled man who fought for global human rights and was the principal author of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. 

It is also the story of Abigail Godreau, a remarkable thirteen-year-old from the same small town as Humphrey, an ambassador for War Amps and an inspiration to her peers.
