In 1987, Cola Bilkuei, a young boy from the Dinka tribe in the southern Sudan, was forcibly recruited into the Sudan People's Liberation Army. For three months, he and hundreds of other children from his tribe were marched from southern Sudan to a military training camp inside Ethiopia. Once they arrived at the camp, exhausted and terrified, they were systematically brutalised as SPLA officers began to turn them into child soldiers. It was a programme designed to prepare them for the savage civil war being fought between the SPLA and the government of Sudan, based in the north of the country. Yet Cola refused to be brutalised. After two years, he escaped from the camp and began an extraordinary odyssey down the length of Africa. Finally, after getting accepted into a UN refugee program in South Africa he managed to arrive in Australia in 2003 as a refugee. It had taken him fourteen years. This book is the story of Cola's extraordinary journey. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Biography & Autobiography; Sudan; ISBN: . ISBN/EAN: 9780405038576.
