Supported by 84 stirring photographs, Going Home tells the story of campesinos chased off of their lands in the early 1980s by an army not satisfied to attack armed opposition to their regime, but determined to annihilate the unarmed opposition as well. It tells how 24,000 of them fled to Honduras and lived for ten long years in overcrowded camps along the border. The book also describes how they kept their dream of returning home alive and now, tiring of waiting for the war in El Salvador to cease, decided to return to their homelands in order to wage peace. Most of all, Going Home tells how the repopulated villages in El Salvador are providing a model of what a new El Salvador might look like--cooperative, productive, and concerned about the basic needs of all citizens. 84 photos.
Richard Shaull, Professor of Ecumenics, Emeritus, Princeton Theological Seminary states, "A significant contribution to . . . the Salvadoran people in their long struggle for peace and justice." And Professor Hugh Lacey, and co-editor of a volume of translated writings of the murdered Jesuits of San Salvador writes, "This is a beautiful book of one of the great and moving stories of our day . . ."
