Publisher Comments:

FROM POVERTY TO WEALTH, FROM AFRICA TO AMERICA, AND FROM CHILD SOLDIER TO U.S. MARINEandlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Born into the Congolese wilderness, Tchicaya Missamou became a child soldier at age 11. As a horrific civil war loomed across his country, Tchicaya began using his militia connections to ferry jewels, cash, computers, and white diplomats out of the country. By 17, he was rich. By 18, he was a hunted man, his house destroyed, his family brutalized in front of him by his own militia. By 19, heand#8217;d left behind everything heand#8217;d ever known, escaping to Europe and, eventually, to America. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Incredibly, that was only the start of his journey.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;Iandgt;In the Shadow of Freedomandlt;/Iandgt; is the uplifting story of one manand#8217;s quest to achieve the American Dream. Tchicaya Missamouand#8217;s life is a shining example of why America is a gift that should not be taken for granted, and why we are limited only by the breadth of our imagination and the strength of our will.
