Product Description

Review

?This memoir helps keep the Darfur tragedy open as a wound not yet healed.? (Elie Wiesel, author of Night)

From the Inside Flap

Darfur. I know to you this must be a word soaked in suffering and blood. A name that conjures up terrible images of a dark horror and an evil without end. Pain and cruelty on a magnitude inconceivable in most of the civilized world. But to me, Darfur means something quite different: it was and is that irreplaceable, unfathomable joy that is home. --From Tears of the Desert

Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book. Could not put it down until I finished it. This is one story of the tortures that took place in Darfur. Well written and a book that takes you away to a terrible place where mankind has lost its way. Dr. Bashir is a true hero in all of this hell. I wish her well. I learned a lot reading this book as I had no idea that Arabs were the ones causing all of these brutal rapes and killings. One of the best books I have read.

This was a very good book, and I read it quickly. I'm glad the author wrote about her experiences, as it sounds like very few have survived to speak of the atrocities in Darfur. It's horrendous to read what human beings are capable of doing to other human beings. But it's important to read what goes on in the world, rather than burying our heads in the proverbial sand. It was an amazing story of survival.

Format: Paperback
unlike books on sudan that are written by outsiders, this is an excellent first person account. the author does a good job first describing the normalcy of life in her village, with her family, and attending university - with the back drop of the country's conflict...the reader is very invested in the survival of her whole family by the time the conflict reaches them...an extremely powerful work...would also rec'd They Poured Fire on Us from the Sky by Deng, Deng and Ajak
