A Long Walk to Water (Paperback)

By Park, Linda Sue

An unforgettable new story from the winner of the prestigious Newbery Medal Two young people, two stories. One country. Southern Sudan, 2008: Nya is going to the pond to fetch water for her family there and back, twice a day. She walks for eight hours every day to perform this se...emingly simple task. Southern Sudan, 1985: Salva is walking away from his ruined village to find safety if there is any safety in his war-torn homeland. His journey across Africa to Ethiopia and then to Kenya and beyond will take many years. Salva is a survivor, and his story goes on to intersect with Nya's in an astonishing and moving way. This mesmerizing dual narrative by award-winning author Linda Sue Park is a fictionalised account of true events and shows us that in a troubled country, determined survivors may find the future they are hoping for.
