Summary:
Pierre-Claver Ndacyayisenga was teaching history in Kigali, Rwanda in 1994, when he was forced to flee to the neighboring Congo with his wife and three children. Thus began a harrowing five-year voyage of survival during which they traveled thousands of miles on foot from one refugee camp to another. Lacking food and water, they were often robbed, sometimes raped, and constantly pursued and bombed by shadowy armed soldiers with sophisticated weapons and aerial surveillance information. This book is the story of one family among more than 300,000 refugees-- many of whom did not survive.
