Running for My Life

Author : lopez Lomong

Genre : Memoir

Lopez was born in 1985 in Kimotong, Sudan and he ran everywhere. He was six years old and barefoot when he was stolen from his parents to be taught to carry a gun and fight for the rebels during the Sudanese Civil War. He and three other boys escaped and landed in a refugee camp in Kenya. In order to play on the soccer team, he had to run 14 miles around the camp before he was allowed to play soccer. As one of the lost boys of Sudan. This book chronicles his survival in a prison refugee camp, how he arrived in the U.S. through the Unaccompanied Refugee Minor program, and his journey from a high-school track star to U.S. Olympic team captain. An example of the American dream come true.
