God Grew Tired of Us

by John Bul Dau
£8.99   paperback  National Geographic Society (2008)

God Grew Tired of Us by John Bul Dau This unforgettable book is the first-person account of a miracle—indeed, a whole series of miracles.
 
One of the uprooted youngsters known as the Lost Boys of Sudan, John Bul Dau was 12 years old when civil war ravaged his village and shattered its age-old society, a life of herding and agriculture marked by dignity, respect, and the simple virtues of Dinka tribal tradition. As tracer bullets split the night and mortar shells exploded around him, John fled into the darkness—the first terrified moments of a journey that would lead him thousands of miles into an exile that was to last many years.
 
John's memoir of his Dinka childhood shows African life and values at their best, while his searing account of hardship, famine, and war also testifies to human resilience and kindness.
