This biography of an inspiring poetic and spiritual man is unfortunately written rather boringly. Ceresole, 1878-1945, was a pacifist, and Swiss, who became a Quaker. He founded in 1920 an international work camp to rebuild a French village; this developed into the Service Civil International, organizing work camps for volunteers to repair and rebuild after war and natural calamities. It still exists.

Swiss activist Pierre Ceresole certainly seems to have walked the walk. He went to prison for a variety of things: taking his message of peace to both Germany and Italy, and lambasting his own government to give up their neutrality in the face of evil, among others. Maddock includes snippets of Ceresole's writings. Especially poignant are some of the prayers he wrote.
