One of the most detailed books on the Lost Boys of Sudan since South Sudan became the world’s newest nation in 2011, this is a memoir of Majok Marier, an Agar Dinka who was 7 when the war came to his village in southern Sudan. Tens of thousands of boys like Majok fled from the Sudanese Army that wanted to kill them. Surviving on grasses, grains, and help from villagers along the way, Majok walked nearly a thousand miles to a refugee camp in Ethiopia, then he and tens of thousands fled to two more countries seeking safety. Majok and 3,400 boys like him emigrated to the United States from 2000 to 2001 while the civil war still raged. In this book, his story is joined to fellow Lost Boys and to others who helped the Boys adapt to the US.
