I read this book on my Nook on vacation. In 2001 during a war in Sudan, thousands of boys from age 12 and up were uprooted and marched across Africa seeking refuge. It was a terrifying life for these " lost boys of Sudan". They suffered from hunger, pain, bullets and everything else you could imagine.John was able to get some education and eventually came to Syracuse, New York with the help of many people and a church. Life was so different in the U.S. and he had much to learn. The book tells of his long march, his eventual arrival in the states and the difficulties he and the other boys had learning a whole new culture.
Fascinating book, not always pleasant to read but inspiring. Check our catalog
