The Sheltering Sky

They Poured Fire On Us From The Sky by Alephonsion Deng. "The story of three Lost Boys' journeys in Sudan. They vividly recall the family, friends, and tribal world they left far behind them and their desperate efforts to keep track of one another. This is a captivating memoir of Sudan and a powerful portrait of war as seen through the eyes of children. And it is, in the end, an inspiring and unforgettable tribute to the tenacity of even the youngest human spirits."
