A Long Walk to Water
by Linda Sue Park
Nya spends all day hauling water back to her village for her family. Salva is running from the war that has torn apart his village and his country.
This story is told in separate chapters. Nya’s story happens about 10 years after Salva’s story.
Nya’s is one of hardship and disease based upon the lack of water.
Salva spends years in refugee camps before he finally gets a chance to go to America.
See how these two stories intersect to give children a chance to see what life is like in Sudan.
Based on a true story.
