Book Report: They Poured Fire On Us From The Sky

This book is the story of the Lost Boys of the Sudan
is incredibly depressing reading of the true story
of the tens of thousands of orphans whose
parents were killed during the continuing
genocide in the Sudan, and how these children
escaped by walking through deserts and war zones
experiencing the worst of tragedies including
starvation, exposure, disease, physical abuse,
slavery, and attacks by wild animals,
to reach refuge camps in neighboring countries,
only to subsist in continuing horrible conditions
for 14 years until, miraculously, a precious few were
rescued through the kindness of strangers,
and were brought to a new life in the USA.

This story was written by 3 boys who came to San Diego.

After reading this fantastic story,
you will be amazed at the indomitable human spirit,
and the will to survive,
even among young children.

Powerful reading...
