Publisher Description

The New York Times bestseller A Long Walk to Water begins as two stories, told in alternating sections, about two eleven-year-olds in Sudan, a girl in 2008 and a boy in 1985. The girl, Nya, is fetching water from a pond that is two hours’ walk from her home: she makes two trips to the pond every day. The boy, Salva, becomes one of the "lost boys" of Sudan, refugees who cover the African continent on foot as they search for their families and for a safe place to stay. Enduring every hardship from loneliness to attack by armed rebels to contact with killer lions and crocodiles, Salva is a survivor, and his story goes on to intersect with Nya’s in an astonishing and moving way.

LOVED IT!!!!!

What an amazing well written Book! At times I felt myself being part of the story and running beside Salva. It is so sad how his life was and everything he had to go thru at such a young age. Than again so breathtaking how it all ended and continue to evolve.
Congratulations Salva!!! For “Always one step at a time” and keeping your uncles advices so close to you. May God Bless you and your family, Birth and the USA.
Congratulations Ms. Linda Sue Park!! I loved the way you actually made us get inside of the book ourselves.
