Out of Exile

by Dave Eggers, Valentino Achak Deng


Out of Exile Synopsis

Millions of people have fled from conflicts and persecution in all parts of this Northeast African country, and many thousands more have been enslaved as human spoils of war. In this book, refugees and abductees recount their escapes from the wars in Darfur and South Sudan, from political and religious persecution, and from abduction by paramilitary groups. In their own words, they recount life before their displacement and the reasons for their flight. They describe life in the major stations on the refugee railroads : in the desert camps of Khartoum, the underground communities of Cairo, the humanitarian metropolis of Kakuma refugee camp, and the still-growing internally displaced persons camps in Darfur.
