God Threw Me Back
Gatluk G. Digiew, author
Gatluk G. Digiew is a little boy cowherd when Civil War erupts in his homeland, South Sudan, and upends his life forever. His memoir, God Threw Me Back: A Child Survives War in Sudan, tells his horrific story through the eyes of a child. Gatluk is wrenched from his family at age nine?shot and left for dead at thirteen. During his agonizing, often solitary, four-year journey to recovery and safely in a new homeland, Gatluk draws courage from his father?s early lessons and deep Christian faith. Gatluk emerges, not as a victim, but as a voice for the battered children of war who cannot speak for themselves.
