A Long Walk to Water
- By: Linda Sue Park
- Narrated by: David Baker, Cynthia Bishop
- Length: 2 hrs and 41 mins
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.

By the end of the story I was cheering for the characters. The story was very moving and gave a glimpse into the lives of the people that lived through the war torn time in Sudan.
