Lost Boys of Sudan An
American Story of the Refugee Experience
Can I Help?
Sudan and the Lost Boys
Coming March 14, 2005
This book follows
four refugees from southern Sudan for their first two years in the U.S.
Separated from parents as boys, they were among thousands of "Lost
Boys" forced in the late '80s to march several hundred miles, a
journey that killed thousands. The U.S. welcomed 3,800 "Lost
Boys" in 2000 and 2001.
The book combines cinematic reporting with authoritative research to
tell the "story behind the story" of the resettlement.
It also documents the history of Sudan, the politics of refugee
resettlement and the evolution of U.S. refugee policy. It chronicles
four men as they go to work, learn to drive and struggle to receive what
they want more than anything - an education.
