Recent news media have exposed the horrific genocides in Rwanda, Darfur, and elsewhere, but little has been publicized about the unseen genocide committed by Muslims against millions of Christians in southern Sudan during the 1980s. From Africa to America: The Journey of a Lost Boy of Sudan provides a firsthand account of the atrocities caused by the same president and government committing genocide in Darfur today. Look through the eyes of one of the Lost Boys, a group of orphans who braved a dangerous trek through desert and jungle in order to flee the war-torn southern Sudan twenty years ago, as author Akol Makeer explains Sudanese cultural traditions and chronicles his life before and after the war. From Africa to America: The Journey of a Lost Boy of Sudan records years of human rights violations and bloodshed, the conversion of southern Sudanese from animism to Christianity during the war, the corruption of U.N. officials, and the sixteen-year journey of the Lost Boys from Sudan to Ethiopia, on to Kenya, and finally to religious and political freedom in America.
