A Long Walk To Water BSY576

US$10.95

The girl, Nya, is fetching water from a pond that is two hours’ walk from her home: she makes two trips to the pond every day. The boy, Salva, becomes one of the "lost boys" of Sudan, refugees who cover the African continent on foot as they search for their families and for a safe place to stay. Enduring every hardship from loneliness to attack by armed rebels to contact with killer lions and crocodiles, Salva is a survivor, and his story goes on to intersect with Nya’s in an astonishing and moving way.

妮雅每天要走八個小時往返池塘取水,才能供她的家人維持生活。同村的居民,和許多其他村莊的人,都必須這樣做才有水可用。薩爾瓦在教室上課時,被一陣槍響打斷。戰爭打到了他的村莊。薩爾瓦跟著大家逃跑,沒想到這一逃,沒辦法再回家。他成了「失落男孩」,在逃難途中被迫面對非洲大地上各種人為和自然的危險。
兩個孩子,兩段故事,在不同的年代展開,都發生在戰爭不斷、缺乏水源的蘇丹。在那困難的生存環境中,孩子會如何看待自己的人生?他們對未來是否還能抱有期待?這兩段故事的發展、交會,讓我們體會到妮雅和薩爾瓦的困境,卻也強力注入了翻轉現實的希望。
