Description

In 1985 southern Sudan is ravaged by war. Rebels and government forces battle for control, with ordinary people . . . people like the boy, Salva Dut . . . caught in the middle. When Salva's village is attacked, he must embark on a harrowing journey that will propel him through horror and heartbreak, across a harsh desert, and into a strange new life.Years later, in contemporary South Sudan, a girl named Nya must walk eight hours a day to fetch water. The walk is grueling, but there is unexpected hope.How these two stories intersect is told in this fascinating dual narrative, performed by David Baker and Cynthia Bishop, with the assistance of dialect coach James Achueil . . . who actually made the same journey across Africa when he was one of the "Lost Boys of the Sudan."

      • content: A stirring performance by David Baker and Cynthia Bishop conveys the dramatic stories of two 11-year-old children who lived 10 years apart in war-torn South Sudan. Baker portrays the boy, Salva, with heartrending effectiveness. Skillful pacing and vocal modulation convey Salva's terror and sorrow as he attempts to survive ruthless gunmen as well as dehydration, crocodiles, and lions on his dangerous trek to the safety of a refugee camp. By contrast, Bishop's unrushed, almost meditative, narration brings out the girl Nya's quiet resilience as she spends her day collecting water for her family. Sound effects highlight the thoughts of the characters, while a periodic drum beat and music set the scene of the African landscape. This production includes an author's note as well as words by Salva himself, which echo the poignance of his story. M.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine
