WALK TOWARD THE RISING SUN From Child Soldier to Ambassador of Peace

by | Read by Ger Duany

Young Adult Ages 12+ • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Ger Duany narrates his life story, detailing his remarkable journey from child soldier to South Sudanese peace activist. With unflinching honesty and a matter-of-fact tone, Duany recounts the horrors of his childhood, which was filled with hunger, displacement, and brutality. Eventually resettling in the United States, Duany overcame racism, educational barriers, and near-crippling PTSD. With pride and wonder, he recounts how he landed a career as a model and actor and was later able to travel back to Sudan to speak on behalf of the Sudanese people. Duany's distinct accent and somewhat unusual pronunciations may require greater listener focus, but they are an important element in this audiobook, bearing testament to his experiences and the courage that he has demonstrated throughout his extraordinary life.
