A wonderful accounting of a terrible time in the life of Francis Bok. I have met him and was inspired by his love of life and willingness to tell his story without animosity.

If you are looking foreward to a great slavery book or a great view into the politics of today, read this book. It will open your eyes to the horrors of the world today... But it is a good book!

This book holds you captive from start to finish with the story of a 7 year old boy taken kidnapped into slavery - his 10 year experience as a slave in the Sudan, and his eventual escape - and finally his new life in America....

May 1986: Seven-year-old Francis Bok was selling his mother's eggs and peanuts near his village in southern Sudan when Arab raiders on horseback burst into the quiet marketplace, murdering men and gathering the women and young children into a group. Strapped to horses and donkeys, Francis and others were taken into lives of slavery under wealthy Muslim farmers.

It sheds light on the plight of many children in the world who desperately need our help to be free. Never take our freedoms for granted. Just by the worst luck of being born in Sudan this boy lost his childhood at the hands of thugs.
