Lost Boy, Lost Girl: Escaping Civil War in Sudan Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of thousands of children who fled strife in southern Sudan, John Bul Dau survived hunger, exhaustion, and violence. His wife, Martha, endured similar hardships. In this memorable book, the two convey the best of African values while relating searing accounts of famine and war. Theres warmth as well, in their humorous tales of adapting to American life. For its importance as a primary source, for its inclusion of the rarely told female perspective of Sudans lost children, for its celebration of human resilience, this is the perfect story to inform and inspire young readers.
