"A Long Walk to Water" is a historical fiction novel for young adults, written by Linda Sue Park and published in 2010. The book is based on the true story of Salva Dut, a Sudanese boy who was forced to flee his home during the Sudanese Civil War in the 1980s.
The story is told through two alternating narratives. The first follows Salva as he struggles to survive the harsh conditions of the war and makes a dangerous journey on foot to a refugee camp in Ethiopia. The second narrative follows Nya, a young girl from a different tribe who spends her days walking to collect water for her family.
As the two stories converge, they highlight the challenges and resilience of the Sudanese people and the power of hope and perseverance in the face of adversity.
The book has been praised for its vivid and moving storytelling, as well as its ability to educate readers about the ongoing conflicts in Sudan.
"Water, she thought, was the most precious of all things."
"Survival starts by paying attention to what is close at hand and immediate. To look out with idle hope is tantamount to dreaming one's life away."Download A Long Walk to Water from below or purchase a copy from Amazon.
