The inspiring true story of a teacher and community leader who led twenty thousand Lost Boys to safety during the Second Sudanese Civil War – now available for younger readers.

During the Second Sudanese Civil War, thousands of South Sudanese boys were displaced or orphaned. In 1989, teacher and community leader Mecak Ajang Alaak lead the Lost Boys on a four-year journey from Ethiopia to Kenya to protect them from becoming child soldiers. This is the account of that extraordinary true story as told by his son, Yuot, who walked beside him every step of the way. It is an inspiring tale about a man who never ceased to believe that the pen is mightier than the gun.
