From a Newbery Medalist ("A Single Shard") comes a mesmerizing novel based on a true story. "A Long Walk to Water" begins as two stories, told in alternating sections, about a girl in Sudan in 2008 and a boy in Sudan in 1985.
From the Publisher:
When the Sudanese civil war reaches his village in 1985, eleven-year-old Salva becomes separated from his family and must walk with other Dinka tribe members through southern Sudan, Ethiopia, and Kenya in search of safe haven.
Linda Sue Park explores the trauma of war, an epic struggle to survive, and a bittersweet homecoming in a foreign land with this true story of a Lost Boy of Sudan. In 1985, 11-year-old Salva, was forced to flee his village during Sudan's second Civil War, traveling through territories filled with dangerous wild animals and hostile soldiers. Leading over 1,000 other boys, he finally reached the safe haven of refugee camps in Ethiopia and Kenya. After years spent waiting, Salva finally landed in Rochester, New York, where he reconnected with his family. Interspersed with Salva's story is the plight of Nya, a girl in modern-day Sudan, who must travel eight hours to get water for her village. Deeply moving and written with care, this is just one narrative of a tragic event that affected millions. Park is the acclaimed author of the Newbery Medal-winner THE SINGLE SHARD.
