As Yahoo!'s first news correspondent, Kevin Sites spent the last year covering every major global conflict for "Kevin Sites in the Hot Zone" on Yahoo! News. These areas of conflict are typically left uncovered or underreported by mainstream news organizations. Sites bravely visited each one, often without help of any kind, and this book delves further into the dramatic stories behind Sites' adventures. The reporting on display here is gripping and unforgettable, including an interview with an exU.S. Marine who is also the son of Somalia's most infamous warlord; the portrait of a former child soldier in the Congo who is rejected by his family and, with no other options, may have to take up the gun again at the tender age of 13; and an unsettling tour of Rwanda's "school of death." But Sites goes beyond the stories here as well, describing his earlier career as a journalism pioneer and his vision of the future of media, one in which fearless, mobile reporters like himself regularly outdo the mainstream outlets and use the web to reach an everexpanding audience.
