Barefoot in the Boot is a detailed and enlightening account of the life of a young Dinka boy from South Sudan. As a child of war, Dominic Malual fled his home at the age of seven, seeking safety from a brutal attack on his village. He traveled hundreds of miles enduring years of danger, loneliness and separation while struggling to reach the refugee camps in Ethiopia and Kenya in search of his family. During Sudans civil war, many children fled for their lives - by some estimates at least twenty thousand. Dominic Maluals story focuses on the challenges he and the other boys faced as they struggled to stay alive. One cannot help but be inspired by the boys creativity in searching for food to avoid starvation, and their determination to live for even one more day.
