Synopsis: This is a story of a nine-year-old Yemeni boy, born into poverty in a small village in the old Kingdom of Yemen, when that country was still frozen in the dark ages. Against all odds, and against strong family wishes, he engaged in many menial jobs in order to survive. But he also had impossible dreams and goals, which he followed through a rough and tortuous path until he reached the United States at age fifteen.

The story is also about people, places, cultures, and events. It is about poverty and hunger, patience and perseverance. It is about the dark ages in the modern world. It is about tragedy and triumph, joys and sorrows, life and death, good and evil, love and hate, hope and despair, success and failure. It includes uncertainty and marks life’s crooked paths. Vision, faith and the will to succeed are there; so are witchcraft, ignorance, oppression, and clashes of cultures. There are goals fulfilled, and dreams unfulfilled. Adventure and the search for the unknown are intertwined with the ugly and the beautiful.

The 130 photos, mostly in color, and the three appendices, A, B, and C, are graphic illustrations of this journey; they bear historical significance.

In the United States, the author found compassion and generosity of spirit in the land of opportunity, where anyone from any part of the globe, can reach goals and fulfill dreams. He found the freedoms to speak, to worship, to work; unafraid to live and to establish a future. He reached his goals and fulfilled his impossible dreams in America the beautiful. To the old, the story is unique and interesting; to the young, it is educational and inspiring.

About the Author: Dr. Abdu is Emeritus Director of Surgical Education at the St. Elizabeth Health Center and Professor Emeritus of Surgery, Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine.
