About the Book

Abraham is one of thousands of children who fled on foot after enemies set fire to their villages and often killed their families. The children walked over a thousand miles across Sudan and Ethiopia, ending up in refugee camps in Kenya. During their march, they suffered from unending hunger and thirst, illness and injury. They had to keep alert for danger from lions, crocodiles, and enemy soldiers.

Although Abraham’s faith falters at times during his journey, he later discovers that his trust in God grew during his desperate march.
