Summary, etc.: This is the fictional story of Valentino Achak Deng, a refugee of the Sudanese civil war. Fleeing from his village in the mid-1980s, Deng becomes one of the so-called Lost Boys--children pursued by millitaries, government soldiers, lions and hyenas and myriad diseases in their search for sanctuary, first in Ethiopia and then in Kenya. Eventually Deng is resettled in the United States with almost 4,000 other young Sudanese men, and a very different struggle begins.
