Rivoting way to learn about the atrocities taking place in Sudan. 'They Poured Fire on Us from the Sky' is told in the unique voice of three young men who overcame and survived obstacles we can hardly imagine. Very inspirational to see how people can go through so much and still retain their dignity. Once you start the book you will not be able to put it down.
