Author: Ger Duany and Garen Thomas
Read By: Ger Duany

Sudan, 1980s: Ger Duany knew what he wanted out of life—make his family proud, play with his brothers and sisters, and become a soldier for his people when he’s old enough. Then his village was attacked by the North Sudanese military, and everything changed. Listen to Ger’s memoir of seeking refuge in America and finding unexpected success, while at the same time battling the effects of PTSD and enduring a new kind of racism.

From environmental activist, renowned crusader, champion fighter, maverick—an audiobook that looks at our present water crisis and shows us how we can each take action to make changes in our cities, towns, and villages, before it is too late.
