A descriptive piece of the lives of two characters raised in the Dinka kin-group of Sudan. Told through the eye’s young children, we learn how the group and others gradually escape in the night.
It is a battling journey with sights of war-torn landscapes. The refugee camp they reach offers little quality of life. Upon finishing this book, what is clear is the impressive persistence of the young children. Matters explored throughout this book include African geography, history, war, and courage.
